DIY Laundry Detergent

There are days when I feel crafty and others I just need super easy solutions. Last week I thankfully was feeling a little crafty so I tackled a DIY project for my mom & I.

Mike and I are currently renovating our house so we are by the grace of my parent’s staying with them for the duration of the renovation. We are so lucky and blessed because we get to eat dinner with our family, my mom is baking Mike muffins every time he finishes a batch and they are spoiling our dogs incredibly. They may or may not be getting treats to lure them inside if they are causing a ruckus so they are learning a few bad habits but nothing more than Mike or I cause at home lol.

I had Mike bring over some supplies from our house to make laundry detergent as we had run out so I tackled this project last week and made 2 containers. One for me and one for my mom.

If you’re here you are on the hunt for a more natural, vibrant life and you are intentional with your spending. Here are 2 recipes you can try if you want to make your own DIY laundry detergent.

Recipe #1

Instructions: Mix Borax & Baking Soda Together. I divided half of this mix into my empty OnGuard Laundry Detergent container and an empty container my mother had of similar size. I added the 2 caps of cleaner concentrate & then water to the top before adding the 10 – 15 drops of each essential oil to the container. Shake and Done.

Recipe #2

  • 1/2 cup of Borax
  • 1/2 cup of Dr. Brooner’s Castile Soap
  • 2 Caps of dōTERRA OnGuard Cleaner Concentrate
  • Water
  • 10 – 15 Drops Each of dōTERRA Lemon & OnGuard Essential Oils

Instructions: Add the Borax, Castile Soal & 2 caps of cleaner concentrate to the empty container. Fill with water and add the 10 – 15 drops of each essential oil to the container. Shake and Done.

And if you just don’t have the time to be crafty I also purchase the dōTERRA OnGuard Laundry Detergent. It lasted us about a month using it for 2-3 loads a weekend.

I’m so thankful I have tools to reduce toxins in our household. Switching over to a more natural solution is making a world of a difference in our health from respiratory to completely removing all skin irritations from my life that I used to get from the standard detergents on the market.
