I mentioned making homemade laundry booster a few posts back and promised to share the recipe if anyone was interested. Quite a few people were intrigued, so here we are! This DIY homemade booster is simple to put together and smells great.

The ingredients are Borax Detergent Booster, Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda, and Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar & Stain Remover. They’re all very inexpensive and can even be purchased together as a kit on Amazon!

  1. I have a homemade laundry detergent recipe that I’ve used for years and this is nearly it! I just recently quit using it after six years because I decided that I could take a few months off from making it now that I have a baby. 😉 But you are inspiring me to get back on my train of making it again. It’s really not all that time consuming and it’s so much cheaper!
