Homemade Liquid Baby Laundry Detergent

As most of you know I am currently what feels like 50 months pregnant (38 weeks 5 days) I am trying to find cheap & easy ways to make my life and parenting easy. There is an awful lot to learn for this first time mom!  I decided to make my laundry detergent for my little man. I have used it to wash all of his clothes already and loving it. Here is my recipe.

What you will need

1 cup Borax

1 cup A&H Washing Soda (make sure its washing soda)

1 bar of Johnson Baby Bar Soap– Grated

2 gallons of Water

Storage container for liquid after made.

Pour into container and use 1/2 cup per load of laundry.

    I have been toying with making my own laundry soap but my daughter has excema really bad and seems to react to Johnson’s & Johnson’s the worst. What would you recommend using in place of the soap? We have been using Aveeno for her baths.

    • Stephanie Rose says:

      Hi Rebecca,

      I would recommend Ivory. My daughter has very sensitive skin and Ivory works well for us. Come let us know if you give it a try.

  3. in your post you say make sure to use Washing Soda, but in the picture it looks like just regular arm and hammer baking soda, is there a difference?
