Homemade laundry soap made with natural ingredients. This easy-to-make laundry soap can be used just like a powder store-bought soap.
Cut the bar into small, thin slices.
Place the soap chunks in a food processor bowl.
Pulse until the soap resembles small crumbles (almost like finely crumbled feta cheese). Alternatively, shred the soap with a sharp cheese grater into a large bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor, and place a dish towel over the processor bowl (optional, if you find the powder is circulating in the air). Pulse until the ingredients are well combined and the mixture resembles a fine powder.
Add the essential oil, if using. Place the dish towel over the bowl again. And pulse for just a few seconds to combine.
Stir or shake the soap before use. Scoop 1-2 tablespoons (for HE machines) or ¼ cup for top-loaders, and add directly to the clothes in the washer (not the soap dispenser). Use the warmest water possible for your clothing. See the troubleshooting tips below for more help.
