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!
Homemade DIY Laundry Booster
2 Cups Borax Detergent Booster
2 Cups Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
2 Bars Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar & Stair Remover
1. In a large bowl or bucket, finely grate the Fels-Naptha bars with a hand grater.
2. Add the Borax and Arm & Hammer and stir to combine all ingredients.
3. To use, add 1/4 cup of the booster to your empty washing machine before adding clothes. Add your detergent, fabric softener, and clothes and wash as you normally would. For smaller loads, use three tablespoons of the booster.
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!
No way?! I need to get your recipe!!
