How To: Cloth Diaper Safe Detergent

Cloth Diaper Safe Laundry Detergent

I’ve mentioned before on here and on twitter, and via instagram that I cloth diaper Jazz. Today, I want to share how I save even more money on my diapering expenses by using a homemade laundry detergent. Since using this recipe I found from Fresh Idea Mama I have not had any issue with my cloth diapers (clothes for that matter too) coming out clean and fresh smelling. All I do is dump the ingredients into a large mouth mason jar, close the lid, shake it up, and use 1 tablespoon per cloth diaper load. I up it to 2 tablespoons for my regular laundry loads. You can add a few drops of essential oils if you would like. I use whatever I have on hand, but lately I’ve been loving lemony scents. I currently have a batch of laundry detergent with a lemon, eucalyptus scent. The mason jar I use for storage is large enough to make a double batch.
