Homemade Laundry Detergent (for sensitive skin): DIY

A simple recipe for homemade laundry detergent, created for sensitive skin. No harsh chemicals and it really works! Plus it's 90% cheaper than buying it!




1. Using a grater, grate your goat milk soap until you have 1 cup of soap shreds. To save time, grate the entire bar and store excess shreds in a container with a lid.
2. In a container with a lid, combine all ingredients. Seal well and shake vigorously until all the ingredients are well combined. Be careful when opening the container as small dust-like particles of the ingredients will become airborne.


  • Safety Precaution: Although safe for external use, Borax should not be inhaled. Therefore it is best to use either a mask or some sort of protective barrier over your mouth and nose when handling it and opening the container for the first time.
  • Also, as a precaution, use protective gloves if you have cuts or open wounds on your hands.
  • Use one tablespoon for light loads, and two tablespoons for heavy loads. This recipe makes enough for 40 tablespoons, which lasts my family approximately one month.
  • For essential oils, my favorite company is Plant Therapy. You can find their shop here.
