I have super sensitive skin... many laundry detergents leave me itchy. After several tries, I finally found a DIY that leaves clothes clean and my skin happy.
It's a simple formula of equal parts:
*I'm vegan so I use coconut but any castile works.
Shred bars of soap (I use food processor) but you can hand grate but that seems very labor intensive!
I buy the castile soap in bulk and shred it all at one time then store the soap already shredded. I then mix the 3 into storage containers I keep by the washing machine. Once those are empty it's a quick mix to refill.
I use whatever small scoop I have to mix the 3 in equal parts. I'm not very scientific about it.
I have a storage container a friend gave me and another one that was from a protein drink. I printed the recipe on the front as a label of the contents.
I use unscented castile so you can add essential oils if you want scented laundry.
To use, I keep a tablespoon measure by the washer and use 1 heaping tablespoon per load.
