Homemade Natural Laundry Powder


There are so many homemade laundry detergent recipes on Pinterest!!! I really wanted to make a simple natural one, so I looked through a bunch of different posts and made my own. It works great on every load of laundry.


Homemade Natural Laundry Powder


All you need is a bar of Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap, Borax, and Washing Soda. If you want, you can add a natural oxy boost, I found some at my local re-fill store.


My recipe is a 1:1:1 ratio. Grate the bar of soap, add 1 cup Borax, and 1 cup washing soda. You can choose a scented Dr. Bronner’s soap or you can add some drops of essential oils. I give the canister a good shake before I use it. An average load needs about 2 Tablespoons.


One thing I love about my natural homemade detergent is that there is no dye in it! No bright blue specks in my detergent! No chemicals or harsh additives.


This detergent is easy to make and works well. I hope you like it as much as I do.


UPDATE: Since publishing, I have learned that Borax may not be the best option. Here is more info about Borax. I am looking into replacing the Borax with Baking Soda and I will let you know how that turns out and what my new ratios are.

Molly’s Suds All Natural Laundry Products

 Product was sent to me in order to post my honest opinion.


Doing the laundry is not a task I look forward to! With a family of four, it seems that we rack up a lot of dirty laundry. I can’t imagine what it looks like with families with more than two kids! Anyways, there is no getting out of doing laundry, so I choose to find the best detergent. In my quest to live a greener lifestyle, I prefer to use detergent with few, yet effective ingredients.



Molly’s Suds, a mom owned company, has created all natural laundry products. I feel like I am on the same journey as Monica and her family. She one day realized that buying just organic produce was not the answer. Chemicals are apparent in every cleaner and bath & body product. Upon this realization, Monica decided to create her own laundry detergent since it is used by everyone on a daily basis. If you have a moment read the “Our Story” section of the website to learn more about Monica’s journey.
