Welcome back! We are here with more great tips on how you can do laundry without detergent! We all get a little behind in our lives and one thing that often gets pushed to the side is all things laundry! If you missed our last post, find more great ideas there.
Some other choices for laundry detergent that could be used in a pinch would be:
- Shampoo: Use the smallest amount you can of a mild, gentle shampoo. Baby shampoo works great but make certain the shampoo has no added conditioners. It is recommended you use the sink or a tub for washing in order to control the suds.
- Bar Soap: There are some bar soaps out there which are specifically for washing clothes. However, regular bar soap will work if it does not contain additives, perfumes, or other skin irritants. There are some bar soaps on the market just for laundry. These soaps work well for making your own laundry detergent. Shave some thin pieces into some hot water to dissolve them. Then you may wash as normal. This can also be used to treat stains by rubbing a bit of the soap into the stain before you launder.
Just like your shampoo other soaps such as bath wash or a hand washing soap can be used in a pinch as well. Follow the same directions as for using shampoo.
- Dish-washing Liquid (not dishwasher) can also be used. With this, you will want to use a very small amount and be certain it does not contain any bleach.
