Homemade Washing Powder

I’m all about a good DIY. I love the idea of making your own rather than buying.

There are many advantages of making your own. The largest for me, is you know what goes into it. A lovely friend gave me this recipe for homemade washing powder and I was so pleased when I finally used up all of my store-bought powder and could make my own!

This recipe makes enough for 150 washes (yes you read that right!) and costs less than 5 cents per wash. At that price, you can’t afford not to be making your own washing powder!


  • 2 cups of Bicarb Soda
  • 2 cups of Washing Soda
  • 1 cup fine salt (I used fine Himalayan Pink Salt)


  1. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  2. Put in glass jar/container and use 1.5 tablespoons per wash. It’s that simple!

Enjoy x
