I used borax substitute and added some lemon essentials oil to my laundry powder.
Wow.....Lisa. What a fab idea.....as always from you. 😊 I have to say I wouldn’t even have thought to make washing powder. It’s great that you know exactly what’s in the powder too. Looks like it was great at getting that stain out. Fab. x
It's good to know someone who has tried these recipes out. I think we tend to take for granted that modern must be better - and it's maybe not so much!
Can you smell the lemon oil Lisa , citrus scents are so fresh
It looks like it did a great job with that stain. And the original instructions say 80 loads so it seems economical. I wonder how it is with sensitive skin? At least you know what is in it so could weed out the culprit if it affected anyone.
Update I did a coloured load yesterday it came out clean and fresh .Tested on whites this morning this rug of Desiree s had a stain on it and it came out.
Apart from knowing what is in it , can you give other advantages Lisa ,
comparative cost involved , and can you compare after doing some mixed laundry
your certainly very adventurous , well done
Sounds good. What are the costs like buying all the ingredients versus buying a big name brand for a similar amount?
