At reCAP® we’re always looking for ways to bring you great ideas for using Mason jars and providing solutions to life’s everyday problems. Enter… The reCAP® recipe for homemade laundry detergent. Almost all the ingredients are available in your supermarket’s laundry detergent aisle, just look toward the bottom shelf. Grating the Fels-Naptha soap even makes this recipe a workout! Check it out and be sure to let us know how you adapt it to fit your needs! 

Just follow this recipe:

Ingredients:

3 cups Super Washing Soda

3 cups Borax

3 cups Pure Baking Soda

1 bar Fels-Naptha 5.5 oz. (grated)

1/3 container Oxy-Clean

10-20 drops each of Orange and Lavender essential oil (We loved the scent of the Fels-Naptha with Orange and Lavender essential oils, but feel free to substitute our choices with your favorite essential oils)

Instructions:

1. First, grate your Fels-Naptha Bar. (This is the workout part!)

2. Place the grated Fels-Naptha in an EXTRA-LARGE bowl or tote. Be sure to choose a container that will be deep enough for mixing all the ingredients together.

3. Next, add the Super Washing Soda, Borax, Pure Baking Soda and Oxy-Clean to the container and mix until well-blended. Add the drops of essential oil while continuing to mix. That’s it!

4. Finish this DIY project by transferring the soap mixture into a 1/2-gallon mason jar of your choice, cap the jar with wide-mouth reCAP pour cap and you’re ready to Shake, Pour and Store each time you do a load of laundry!

Laundry Soap in a Mason Jar

(You only need to use 2-3 tablespoons per load, so a 1/2 gallon should last approximately 3 months!)
