DIY: Laundry Soap

Lindsay GrimesDIY, Oils

Young Living just came out with an amazing Thieves Laundry Soap that I have and love. I keep it around in case I run out of my all natural homemade laundry detergent.

Most of my DIY recipes are easy and my laundry detergent is no different!

That’s right, my natural DIY Laundry detergent recipe is S-I-M-P-L-E.
Only three ingredients, and it will last you for a very long time!
I’m trying to make this doable for y’all!

I got this recipe from my friend Jeannette, and have been using it since we returned to the states at the end of May 2014. I hadn’t started using essential oils yet, but knew I wanted to start making changes in my life in regards to the toxins and chemicals we allowed inside our home. Laundry detergent was an easy place to start.

I love it!
And Kevin, who I wouldn’t say is picky but knows what he likes, has given his approval to the detergent!

This is a dry recipe.
Growing up, liquid detergent was in our home and this was my first ever “dry” detergent.
It’s less messy, so I like this much better.

Equal part Baking Soda
Equal part Washing Soda (I bought mine on Amazon)
Equal part Seventh Generation Natural Oxy Stain Remover (I bought mine on Amazon)

– Mix together
– Use 2 tablespoons of detergent for a full load (yes, that’s all you need! I use two spoon fulls of that green spoon in the top picture)
– Enjoy your clean clothes with natural detergent


It’s really that simple!

Please leave a comment letting me know if you made it and how you like it! I love hearing from you!
