DIY Super Laundry Bombs (friendly budget 101)
DIY & Crafts
Here's how to make them:
You'll Need: 1/2 Fels Naptha Bar 1/2 c. Washing Soda (NOT baking soda) 1/2 c. Borax 2 c. water
Measure the Washing soda and Borax into a baggie or small bowl, mix well to combine and break up any chunks that may be in the soaps.Very finely grate the 1/2 bar of fels naptha. In a medium size saucepan bring water to a boil, dump in the finely grated fels naptha and stir continuously for 8 min.
Once the soap is completely (100%) dissolved with NO chunks at all, add in the washing soda/borax mix, stirring constantly. It will be a very thick, creamy consistency. Remove from heat and pour into a medium size bowl, let it cool for at least 20 minutes.
Using a Hand mixer, Whip it until it has doubled in volume. Do not add any additional liquid, it is not necessary and will dilute the strength of your finished detergent.
Once the mixture has been whipped, form it into 48 balls. This can be done several different ways, a melon baller works perfectly to make even balls. Alternatively, we found this delightful mini-ice cube tray at the dollar store (Each slot holds 2 tsps)
Fill each slot, place the tray in the freezer for 15 minutes, then pop out the Laundry Bombs. Again, if you don't have a mini ice cube tray you can use a melon baller. Each ball is about 2 teaspoons TOTAL.
Store them in a covered container or plastic bag. We prefer a covered container to prevent them from being broken/crushed.
