HOW TO MAKE A WASHING MACHINE DETERGENT AT HOME

It is not difficult and you can save a lot of money. In addition to reducing some waste in our domestic budget. The natural detergent for the washing machine, made at home, is also an excellent solution from an ecological point of view, and among other things, the basic ingredients are very few. As suggested by this recipe provided by our reader Emanuela Battistelli.

HOMEMADE WASHING MACHINE DETERGENT

Let's see together Emanuela's recipe to prepare laundry detergent in the washing machine :

Necessary

  • 4 liters of water
  • 1 bar of Marseille soap

Method

  • Get yourself a big enough pot and pour 4 liters of water.
  • Bring the water to a boil and in the meantime grate a bar of Marseille soap (the choice is yours regarding the brand).
  • As soon as the water starts to boil, turn off the gas and add the Marseille soap flakes: a few moments and the soap will dissolve completely.
  • Finally, add four heaping tablespoons of baking soda and your homemade laundry detergent is ready. Simple right?

An advice 

Prepare the detergent in the evening, so as to leave everything to rest for at least a whole night (with the lid on). The next morning you just need to blend the mixture with any mixer to obtain a liquid detergent that has nothing to envy to those on the market.

HOW TO STORE YOUR HOMEMADE WASHING MACHINE DETERGENT

As for the storage of the detergent, Emanuela suggests us to use the 5-liter bins that contain the water that is used for the iron.

HOW TO USE THE DETERGENT FOR THE WASHING MACHINE

Pour two tablespoons into the dosing tray of the washing machine. In the case of whites, leave them to soak overnight and then in the morning continue with the washing in the washing machine. You will see what a result.

Since the detergent tends to be quite thick, when you pour it into the dispenser make sure it runs down into the drum.

If, on the other hand, you want to use the detergent directly in the washing machine door, before pouring it dilute the two spoons in a glass and with hot water.

WHITE VINEGAR IN PLACE OF SOFTENER

Emanuela uses only vinegar, perfect for both white and colored garments. Not to mention that white vinegar is also perfect for cleaning the floor and kitchen surfaces.

For a touch of fragrance and freshness, add two drops of natural perfume: you can find it in herbal medicine.
