Home Made Washing Powder

This is another commonly asked for Nifty Tip – how to make washing powder to save money & for those with sensitive skin. It is quick & easy & lasts months!

Amount to use in each load – for front loaders 1/2 tablespoon and for top loaders 1-1/2 tablespoons!


  • Bi carb
  • Borax
  • Washing soda (lectric soda – powder not crystal form)
  • Pure Soap (I use Priya soap) or you can use Sard Wondersoap or Velvet Soap

How to:

  1. Grate soap.
  2. Mix equal parts of each ingredient (I use one cup of each ingredient except Borax – use half amount) together in a airtight container!
  3. For sensitive skins I would exclude the Borax.
