Make Your Own Washing Soda
Making or buying washing soda is the first step to making your own laundry detergent. You can find washing soda in the laundry isle of most grocery stores. You can also make your own washing soda, like I did…
All you need is baking soda, a cookie sheet (or cake pan) and an oven! (No lemons needed… but lemons always make for prettier pictures)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Pour some baking soda into the cookie sheet or pan. No measurements, just pour (this is my kinda recipe!) Bake for about 1 hour in the oven, and stir it occasionally.
The baking soda will change in consistency and will become grainy.
Remove the baking soda (now washing soda) from the oven to cool.
Transfer the washing soda to a container for storage or later use. I used a jar to store my new washing soda. Done!
Stay tuned for how your can make your own Laundry Detergent (another Super EASY recipe!)…
