DIY Natural Laundry Powder



  • Large mixing bowl
  • Spoon or whisk for mixing
  • Airtight container for storage


  1. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the washing soda, bicarbonate of soda, citric acid and salt. Mix thoroughly to ensure that all ingredients are evenly distributed.

  2. Add Soap Flakes: Add the coconut soap to the mixture. This will help in cleaning and lifting dirt from fabrics. Mix thoroughly to ensure even distribution throughout the powder.

  3. Add Essential Oils: Sprinkle your chosen essential oils over the mixture. This not only adds a pleasant scent to your laundry but can also have additional antibacterial properties. Mix thoroughly to ensure the oils are well distributed throughout the blend.

  4. Store the Mixture: Transfer the mixture to an airtight container to keep it dry and to maintain the potency of the essential oils. Label the container with the contents and date so you know what’s inside and when it was made.

  5. Usage: Use approximately 1 tablespoon of the laundry powder per load, adjusting as needed based on the size and soil level of the load. For extra freshness, consider adding a vinegar rinse during the rinse cycle.

This DIY laundry blend is easy to make, environmentally friendly, and effective for regular use. The ingredients are natural and gentle, making this blend suitable for sensitive skin and various fabric types. Enjoy fresh, clean laundry with your very own homemade detergent!
