I have a previous post that is time consuming and kind of messy (although it gets the job done) for Make Your Own HE Laundry Detergent, I am finally fulfilling my promise by coming back with another recipe for HE Liquid Laundry Detergent and this one is SOOOO MUCH EASIER! No melting, no grating, no mess, and NO SOAP CHUNKS LEFT OVER ON MY CLOTHING! WOOHOO! This one can be used with warm or cold water and works great every time I have been using this one for at least the last 6 months now and I think it works great! This one is a no mess, no melt, no fuss recipe!
What You Need:
- 3 TBSP Dawn (Original Blue Dish Washing Liquid)
- 3 TBSP Borax
- 3 TBSP Super Washing Soda
- 3 Scoops Oxiclean (Optional)
- 4 Cups Boiling Water
- Gallon Container/Dispensing Jug (I use an empty detergent container with the cup and spout)
- Essential Oils for scent (Optional)
In a one gallon dispensing jug, dissolve all ingredients in the boiling water. Let cool. (If using essential oils, go ahead and add them now.) Add cold water to fill the jug, if desired.
Here is the recipe along with the Fabric Softener recipe in a printable format. I have one of these taped on the inside of my laundry room cabinet for easy access.
