Simple Laundry Detergent Recipe

This is a simple, fast way to make your own laundry detergent.


  • 1 cup Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Liquid Soap
  • 3/4 cup OxiClean Baby Stain Fighter
  • 3/4 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
  • 2 cups water


  1. Warm the water in a stockpot over low heat. Stir in OxiClean and washing soda and mix until dissolved.

  2. Take your stockpot off of the heat. Pour in Castile soap and stir.

  3. Pour the mixture into a one-gallon container. Or separate evenly into four 1-Liter pump bottles. Fill the remainder of the container(s) with water.

  4. Shake before use if needed. Use 1/4 cup of laundry soap per load. Add Cleaner and OxiClean to washer BEFORE adding laundry. Safe for HE Washers.

Recipe Notes

You could also add 5ml of your favorite essential oils to the mix after heating. I love using lavender, peppermint, or citrus.
