Interested in making homemade laundry detergent? If you’re looking for organic laundry soaps on the market, it’s possible they are not as organic as their labels indicate. Conventional laundry soaps can have negative effects on your health, including skin and throat irritation and carcinogenicity. You never truly know what ingredients could be omitted from a tag despite your attempt to make an informed decision.

So, why not make your own product?  Detergent is so pricey anyway. It’s depletes so quickly, especially in the case of families who wash together. What an expense! But how about taking an alternate route from buying detergent at the local grocery store? We think it’s important to always keep yourself in check in terms of chemicals that are in contact with our bodies which is why we thought homemade laundry detergent would be a great DIY project for you to try at home. Hope you like it!
