DIY Laundry Soap & The BEST cleaner for your front loading washer!

 My skin has been randomly breaking out in red bumps and I had scratched them so much the looked HORRIBLE!  I am pretty selective with EVERYTHING I use to bath in and wash clothes in.  So out of process of elimination, I started wondering if there could be a change in the TIDE that I have always used.  Yes, I could run out and buy a 13.00 bottle of a free and clear organic type detergent...but there are not guarantees that would even work.  So in my desperate and itchy state, I turned to Pinterest to find a DIY Laundry Soap for sensitive skin.  

Let me tell you....there were SO many options!  I found one rather quickly and just went with it!
 This one stated that it was for sensitive skin!  That sold me right there!  I ended up running to Wal-Mart and grabbed the much needed ingredients.  Can you believe I actually found all of the ingredients at Wal-Mart?!?!  Usually, I go in and get frustrated with their lack of products that I need! 

Anyway, I have been using this mix for several weeks now, and I am generally impressed and not so itchy anymore!!  Yea!!!


Here is the recipe:
1 tbsp washing soda
1 tbsp baking soda
1 tbsp grated Castile soap (I used Kirk's Castile soap)
1/2 cup-1 cup of distilled white vinegar in the fabric softener compartment

1 tbsp of Citric Enzyme Cleaner or Citric Acid----I have not used this in my mix. 
But here is the blog that I found the laundry soap recipe on.  She has a recipe for making the Citric Enzyme Cleaner.  I hope to try this soon!

I have not mixed them together, I just quickly scoop the 3 ingredients into the detergent compartment of the washer.

OKAY....
This recipe doubles as a WASHING MACHINE CLEANER!!!
SO, after 3-4 loads my washer was cleaner than ever!!!!  My once gross and smelly front loading door was clean!!!  Can you tell I am THRILLED!!!  The residue ring around the inside of the front  door wiped off easily with no effort at all! I have used many commercial products to clean this washer!  NOTHING cleaned it better than this laundry mix!

NOW, GO CLEAN THAT WASHING MACHINE!
