Homemade powdered laundry soap works great with warm and hot loads of laundry, but what about cold loads? You have two options. Blend 1 tablespoon of powder with warm water and dissolve ahead of time, or make this DIY liquid laundry detergent recipe for use in all temperatures. (Find my powdered recipe here.)
Both the powdered and the liquid recipes call for a natural soap. I prefer old-fashioned soap made with lard. See Just So’s Laundry Soap with EMs. Other suggested brands include Kirk’s and Dr. Bronner’s.
