Frugal Tip: Making Washing Soda
I make my own laundry soap, both powder and liquid. Recipes are found below.
I was getting ready to make a batch of powder today and realized, I have no Washing Soda. So I made some.
Did you know you can turn Baking Soda into Washing Soda very easily? They are chemically different, but you can cook the H2O out of the baking soda and you have Washing Soda!
Pour Baking Soda on a cookie sheet, and bake at 200° for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
You can stir part way through to ensure all the moisture is being evaporated. Store the washing soda in a glass container with tight fitting lid to avoid any moisture from entering.
Here are my 3 recipes for DIY Laundry Soap:
- BORAX FREE Laundry Powder (2 ingredient)
- Liquid Laundry Detergent (with borax)
- Powder Laundry Detergent (with borax)
