I've been making my own laundry detergent for almost a year now and I will never go back to overpaying for store-bought laundry soap again. Have you seen my original Homemade Laundry Detergent Recipe? I've been wanting to use Fels-Naptha as a substitute for Ivory for awhile but I'm not big on "change" and sometimes I just need a little push. Well, Purex sent me a bar of Fels-Naptha to try out and that was apparently the push I needed! I love it so much that I don't plan on going back!
Fels-Naptha is a laundry bar that is made specifically to remove even the toughest stains. Purex Fels-Naptha has been a trusted stain remover for over 100 years! To fight tough stains, all you have to do is rub the stain with a wet bar of Purex Fels-Naptha and wait a couple minutes then wash it. Since Baby Z is the queen of stains, I was really excited to try this new and improved laundry detergent recipe!
1 cup Borax
1 cup Washing Soda
1 grated bar of Fels-Naptha
Things you need:
1 cheese grater, blender, or food processor
1 container to store detergent in
1 large bowl
I start with the bar of Fels-Naptha. To grate it, you can use a cheese grater (that’s what I do) or just stick in a blender or food processor. The smaller the grated pieces, the easier they'll dissolve in the washer (although, I haven't had a problem with the cheese grater pieces).
Next, you mix the grated soap, washing soda, and borax all together (make sure it’s mixed really well!) and put it in a tightly-sealed container. I use an old Clorox wipe plastic container and its perfect.
You only need 1 or 2 tablespoons per load, how awesome is that?! Also, because it’s powder and not liquid, the shelf-life is really long. I have been really happy with this new recipe and I plan on using Fels-Naptha every time I make homemade laundry detergent!
