Powdered laundry detergent "recipe"
In my spare time I take a break from being the amazing Beeblebrox and put on my thrifty mom hat. I just got finished making my twice-yearly supply of laundry detergent and thought you guys might be interested. You'll probably have to order clay powder and SLSa, but everything else can be found at the grocery store (Kroger is my go-to). This stuff is amazing and works just as well if not better than store-bought detergents. The best part is you know exactly what's in it!

One note: sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSa)is NOT the same thing as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLES) or sodium laureth sulfate (SES). It's a much milder, safe surfactant (soap) that's derived from coconut and palm oil.

Powdered Laundry Detergent

1/4 C clay powder (I use white Kaolin)
2-3 T essential oil of your choice (optional)
13 C Borax
6 C baking soda
6 C washing soda
2 C sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSa)

Use a dust mask or damp scarf over your nose and mouth...trust me on this one.

Using a fork, mix the clay powder with the essential oil, making a smooth paste. Add the remaining ingredients to the clay paste in a 2-3 gallon tub, breaking up any lumps.

Store in a lidded container in a dry place. Use approx. 1/8 C per load.

This lasts between 6 month and 1 year depending on how many kids you have, lol.

Tks OP for this recipie. I have made my own liquid detergent & use it all the time. I used Lavender oil.
What is the purpose of "clay"? Also, using the SLSA, is this suitable for front loaders??? I have not used the SLSa because it was not part of the recipie I used.

Also with the essestial oil, one could put it in a spray
bottle, maybe dilute with water and spray it on the mixed powders. That way, you won't get lumps.

Edit: I also used Sunlight bar soap (grated it first)

Sulfates ruin the water supply when used, so dont use sulfates. Most of the detergents down in Mexico and Guatemala are all made with sulfates, and are ruining the natural water supply in the lakes and streams. Do the research and see for your self. I have seen this for myself. Lake Atitlan Guatemala for example.

Honestly, I've never seen it in stores...I always order it online. I have a giant bag of it that's lasted for years, but I think it costs around $10 a lb at online soap-making supply websites. It can also be used for powdered bubble bath and fizzy bath bombs...lots of fun stuff!

 Quoting: ohhappydays


The clay is a natural fabric softening agent...I very seldom have to use additional softener (really only with fleece to prevent static). I really don't know about the front loading machines, but I'll see what I can find about it.

Be sure to use only white clay for obvious reasons!

Spraying the EO is a great idea...I think I'll try that next time. You could even use a complimentary hydrosol instead of water for an extra punch of scent. Orange flower scented sheets would be Heavenly...

My sister makes a liquid detergent with grated Sunlight soap and really likes it...just depends on what you prefer!

I'm going to have to investigate further, but I've been making skincare products and cleaning supplies for years and literally every seller of ingredients I've ever bought from claims the stuff is natural and safe.

Maybe I've been misinformed and if so I apologize for posting this recipe.

Actually, you don't need the (SLSa), unless you want suds. Because people have been trained to accept that suds or soap bubbles is a good thing in all types of soaps, almost all manufactures add SLSa in their detergents. Truth is all cleaning is done at the chemical level, which has nothing to do with suds. Just an FYI.

There are two things I have in the house at all times: vinegar (cider and white) and tangerine essential oil. Vinegar is amazing for windows, mirrors and appliances as well as softening fabric. Tangerine oil not only smells great but will de-goop anything, including skin (mixed with a carrier oil). I don't use it for clothes or carpet since it has an orange tint, but for everything else it's great. Plus, it smells great!
