Homemade Dry Laundry Detergent Recipe

Patriots Against the NWO – by Pete Smith

The Recipe:

1 box Borax                           $4.00

1 4 lb. box Baking Soda        $3.44

1 box Washing Soda             $3.66

3 bars Fels-Naptha Soap       $1.00 a bar

1 box of Purex Crystals         $4.00

5 1/2 cups Oxyclean (Any brand will do I used two of the dollar tree Oxy power tubs) from $2-$5  

Total= $20.10

For 6-12 months of soap, could last longer if you don’t do a lot of washing.


1.You begin by shredding the Fels-Naptha bars. You can had grate or use food processor, trust me use the food processer.

2. Next I combined all the ingredients in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid. This did take a little muscle strength but it was not bad even my wife could have done it. Pour 1/3 of each item and mix, then pour 1/3 and mix and then pour the last of each item. After all items are in bucket put on the lid and shake the bucket.

3. All that is left to do is to place the soap in a small storage container and label it for use. You use only use one level scoop per load. I saved the scoop from the Oxy to use.

  1. even easier: 1 cup borax, 1 cup washing soda, and 1 bar ivory soap (shredded). mix together and voila, soap powder. Makes zero bubbles but cleans like a charm. smells nice, too.

  2. clearly terrorists desperately trying to blow up their washing machines.. See something, say something…

  3. I have made my own laundry soap for about a year now. But it’s in liquid form. I like this powder recipe better. I can’t seem to get the liquid form thin enough.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    . . .

  4. Are we saving much money here over store-bought laundry detergent? I can’t remember what I paid for my last box.
    I try to avoid washing clothes for as long as possible because it’s like throwing my clothes into a rock-tumbler. They wear out too fast when you wash ’em, and the price of new clothes makes the price of detergent irrelevant.

  5. Fact: nudist colonies have really low laundry bills. The savings is spent on Viagra though. You just can’t win.
