How to Make Washing Powder Formula At Home

How To Make Washing Powder At Home


At home we use household liquid detergent to wash clothes, especially girls' clothes and washable diapers. But as a part of the family really likes the typical brand washing machine soap I was encouraged to try to make a homemade detergent and the results are great.

This powder detergent is easy and very quick to make, in addition the ingredients are found easily in supermarkets and drugstores.

Although the liquid detergent lasts longer, proportionally, this laundry detergent washes laundry very well. I recommend it especially for washing dirty clothes, cloth diapers and stains.

For example, the stained diapers of poop that usually cost a lot to wash them well, I make a little powder detergent, I rub and leave to soak, after a while I clarify and I put it to the washing machine, they stay like new.

And now get to work


How To Make Homemade Washing Powder?



INGREDIENTS
  • 120 gr. of soap of Castile or of the grandmother, grated.
  • 125 gr. of sodium bicarbonate.
  • 125 gr. of sodium percarbonate (solid hydrogen peroxide).
  • 20 drops of lemon essential oil.

The ideal is to make the soap of Castile or make barter with a friend who has, but in some specialized stores they sell already grated.

Sodium percarbonate or solid hydrogen peroxide. Sodium percarbonate is composed of sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide, which decompose in oxygen, water and sodium carbonate, generating active oxygen.

It is used mainly as a cleaning agent, bleach, stain remover and the best part is that it does not damage the environment. Not only is it used to wash clothes, especially hard stains, but also in household cleaning products.



The essential oil (ae) of lemon gives a very fresh aroma or if you prefer you can add ae of lavender. I have to say that when the clothes are dry it is very little smell, so if you like the clothes smell, add a few drops of essential oil in your home softener.

I leave you another recipe to make powdered soap, but this one takes borax instead of percarbonate. The borax, although there is much controversy and variety of opinions, say that it contaminates. To see it click here.

How To Prepare Washing Powder At Home


DEVELOPMENT AND USE

In a chopper, thermomix or similar, we shred as much as possible the soap, previously grated.
Then add the bicarbonate and percarbonate, mix well to make it homogeneous and finally add the drops of essence oil.

We put our powdered detergent in a sealed glass container, closed and store in a dry and dark place.
In each wash we add 60 gr. of the detergent in the washer housing

IMPORTANT


It is not recommended to use sodium percarbonate in woolen garments, in very delicate garments and in garments that have unstable colors.
