Homemade Washing Detergent

Home Made Washing Detergent is an amazing non toxic way to clean your clothes! You will not see a lot of suds from this recipe in your washer but your clothes will be clean! So simple to make with only 4 ingredients I love the antiseptic/antibacterial quality of using essential oils to clean and they smell so good!
The essential oil will provide an additional disinfectant and give it an awesome aroma.
I like to use either a citrus oil or Melaleuca, Lemon or On Guard Essential Oil for this recipe.
You can purchase Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils at doterra.com/mjenningsdesigns
1 bar of shaved soap½ cup of borax½ cup of washing soda3 drops of essential oil (lemon, melaleuca, on guard)
If you are using warm or hot water just add 1 – 2 TBSP of powder to the washer.If using cold water dissolve 1 – 2 TBSP of powder in hot water to be sure it distributes through the clothing properly.
