Another nontoxic cleaner you can easily make at home is a DIY laundry detergent. To make your laundry detergent, you only need three simple ingredients. You can make either powdered laundry detergent or liquid laundry soap, whichever you prefer. For the liquid laundry soap recipe, you will need some washing soda which is easy to find at most grocery stores, some Borax, and a bar of soap (pick something you like the smell of). For the bar soap, you can use Ivory soap, Dr. Bronner's, or any other natural, unscented or scented bar soap. You can also add some baking soda to the laundry detergent recipe to help freshen your clothes. To make the DIY laundry detergent you start by grating the bar of soap or you can put it in a food processor until it is finely ground up. In a large bowl mix two parts of the Borax with two parts of the washing soda, to one part of the grated bar of soap. You can also add a few a few teaspoons of baking soda for extra cleaning power if you like. Store in a large mason jar in your laundry room.
