Would you like to reduce waste in your laundry? Try our Laundry Soap & Stain Remover Bar!

I developed this bar predominantly as a stain remover. It’s made with really basic ingredients that are quite effective for hand washing and spot removal on your clothing and linen.

 

Why is it so good?

  1. It’s multipurpose – use for stain removal and/or laundry powder
  2. It’s super easy to make your own laundry powder using this bar (But takes some elbow grease!)
  3. You’ll get rid of some plastic bottles or bags from your laundry
  4. These bars are free of palm oil, colour, and artificial fragrance
  5. You’re getting a natural handmade product
  6. You’re also supporting a small NZ business (And I’m very grateful!)

 

How do I use the laundry soap & stain remover bar?

You could:

  • Use it as a stain remover = Wet the clothing, rub the bar on the stain. Leave for 20-30 mins, wash as normal.
  • In laundry powder = Grate the bar (VERY carefully. These go rock solid very quickly after being made, so can be tricky to grate) into a bucket/tub, and mix with 2 cups each of borax, bicarbonate soda, and soda ash (washing soda). Blitz in a food processor until fine. Use 1-2 Tbs for a front loader, and 2-3 for a top loader. Add vinegar to the rinse drawer/cycle to help remove any build-up.
  • This works really well for period underwear, pre-wash.

 

Which bar do I choose?

The bars are the almost identical. The only difference is scent, or lack of in the unscented version. So if you like a milk scent in your laundry, choose the scented version. If not, or if you want to add your own, choose the unscented version.

Recipe for Laundry Powder that I use

  • 2 cups borax
  • 2 cups sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
  • 2 cups soda ash (washing soda/sodium carbonate)
  • 1 cup grated soap

I blitz the ingredients in a blender to make for more of a powder finish. The borax acts as a water softener. We have hard water here, so it really helps to use this in our house.
