Super Strength Homemade Laundry Detergent Recipe

Do you have a very active family that seems to find new ways to stain their clothes quicker than you can wash them ?  This homemade laundry detergent is answer to really get clothes clean.

Once you have bought the ingredients (you may have to buy more zote bar soap) you will be able to make at least 6 of these huge batches of laundry soap detergent from the same boxes.



Grate the Zote bar soap into a medium saucepan and pour in 4 1/2 cups hot water. Slowly melt grated soap over low heat until the soap is completely melted then stir.

In a 5 gallon bucket: Add

– Melted soap from medium saucepan

– 1/2 cup 20 Mules Borax

– 1 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

– 3 gallons of hot water

Let sit overnight to thicken. Add essential oil drops at this time. Slowly stir for 4 minutes to dissolve any lumps.  Using a 5 gallon bucket with a gamma screw top lid keeps the laundry soap from spilling and is 100 times easier to open.

For HE machines, use 1/8 cup per load. For top-loading machines, use 1/4 cup per load.
