Just recently I thought I'd make laundry liquid for a change. I've been making laundry powder for more than 10 years and although it's great, I do get powder residue on the clothes from time to time
After doing some research on YouTube I gave it a go a few months ago and have been quite happy with the results. Keep in mind Darren and I do not have filthy, grotty clothes and if we do have stains, I treat them with Miracle Spray.
Here's the recipe I've come up with
400 grams of finely zested pure laundry soap
2 cups of bi carb of soda
2 cups of washing soda
1 cup of laundry soaker powder ( I used Aldi Di San brand )
Lots of water
In a large saucepan place the zested laundry soap and 2 litres of hot water.
Place the saucepan on a low heat and stir until the soap has dissolved.
Take the saucepan off the heat and pour into a 20 litre bucket.
Add 10 litres of warm to hot water and add all the other ingredients
Stir until well combined then add cold water until it reaches almost to the top of the bucket.
Half fill up 2 litre plastic bottles with the laundry liquid and top up with cold water. I used old vinegar bottles.
Give the bottles a good shake to combine.
Give the bottle a good shake then pour about 150 - 200 mls of liquid to your load of washing.
