4 Ingredient Laundry Soap

There is something really satisfying about making my own products. I love knowing that laundry detergent isn’t some mysterious blend of ingredients that only the people at Tide know how to do. It gives me a sense of accomplishment that I know a few homesteading essentials. This recipe saves our family money and works just as good, if not better, than our old store brand.

  • I want to make my own detergent but I love the smell of gain how can I make detergent to smell almost like it

    • Hi Mallari,

      I’m with you! I love the fresh smell of laundry and will often use my favourite essential oils to add scent. You can either add essential oils (approx. 20-30 drops) to the baking soda before mixing with the rest of the ingredients or put 5-10 drops into the compartment reserved for bleach before each load.

      But your question did get me thinking of some alternatives. I came across some helpful information suggesting Gain Fireworks fragrance booster, which you would add to each load along with your DIY detergent. Hope that helps! Let me know how it turns out!

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
