Switching to a phosphate-free, natural laundry detergent is an easy way to green up your household cleaning routine. Many laundry powders are made with commercially produced laundry bar soap, which contains ingredients known to be harmful to septic systems and aquatic ecosystems. This laundry soap is made from soap hand made from vegetable oils, no lard, petroleum products, or artificial fragrances. And it smells terrific too – a light and fresh combination of citrus essential oils with a hint of sweet thyme. Safe for HE washing machines, as well as top-loading washing machines.
How To Use
You may use this detergent either as a scoopable powder, or dilute with water to make a liquid laundry gel. The benefit to liquid laundry gel over powder is being able to wash in cold water without worring about whether or not the powder is fully dissolved. Either way, you will get 32 loads.
To use as a dry powder: Use 1/8 cup dry powder per load. Add 1/2 cup white vinegar in the rinse cycle.
To use as a gel: To create gel, boil two cups water. Add 30 oz dry laundry powder and allow to fully dissolve. Pour into a container such as a gallon jug. Top off with enough water to fill the jug. Shake well before each use. Liquid will separate. Use 1/2 cup per load. Just give your container a good shake each time you use it to keep the solution well-mixed.
Packed in your choice of a mason jar (returnable for $1.50 store credit) or a paper bag (best for mail orders). Please recycle or compost the bag.
