Homemade laundry detergent is so easy to make and is super effective at cleaning clothes. This DIY laundry detergent goes above and beyond most laundry detergents. It gets whites whiter, is safe for sensitive skin, and is very cheap to make. It also smells amazing. The only thing it doesn't do is put away the clothes for you! This homemade detergent uses only 3 ingredients and takes only minutes to make. It's definitely one of the best DIY projects you will find.

I have also used this soap recipe. I worked great! Instead of it being dry soap we mixed it into a 5-gallon bucket and let it all mix together. I usually pour mine into a used gallon laundry soap bottle. My son went so far as to add a spigot to the bottom portion of his so he could just push a the lever and get his soap.
