Homemade Laundry Products to Try ASAP

Store-bought products clean your clothes, but they may not always be kind to your skin. The chemicals found in many name brands can spur irritations or bring on allergies, and that can be much more infuriating than a clumsy stain on a favorite shirt. Thankfully, those with sensitive skin — or anyone who prefers peace of mind — can tackle this chore with a collection of simple homemade products. Here are five straightforward concoctions that you should keep in your laundry room, most of which only have a handful of ingredients, so that you can wear a fresh wardrobe without any lingering concerns.

Make Sure Every Part of Your Detergent Is Homemade

A main ingredient in most homemade laundry detergents is washing soda, which is really just baking soda prepared in a particular way. Learn how to make your own using one ingredient and an oven, and you'll be able to add it to whichever detergent you prefer. That's one quick and inexpensive way to gain control of cleanliness.
