Why am I sharing our laundry detergent recipe? There are many arguments for swapping to homemade laundry detergents. It could be avoiding the sodium lauryl sulphates, phosphates and other nasty chemicals, it could be related to a skin reaction/eczema or the sheer overwhelming stench of some powders. Or like me – it is cheaper! Part of our plastic free adventure is having to find new products to replace our old ones. Most commercial laundry soaps are 1) not soap but actually synthetic detergents and 2) have some form of plastic in either their packaging or their scoops. So here is my current answer to plastic free laundry.
