Nellie's Laundry Soap

Eco Friendly Laundry Product Rated Number #1

Made with only four ingredients, Laundry Soda is a highly concentrated formula that dissolves quickly in cold or hot water and is septic safe. Most importantly, it rinses completely clear, leaving your skin and the environment as spotless as your clothes. Washing soda (sodium carbonate) has a very high pH level, making it an extreme alkaline compound that is very effective as a cleaning agent. Borax (sodium tetraborate) pH levels aren't as high as washing soda, and it doesn't have the same cleaning power as washing soda.

Washing soda is what you want to use when you need a cleaning boost for your laundry. It's also a great general cleaner that can remove stains and stubborn dirt and grime. However, if you still have reservations about using washing soda for your clothes, you might want to try a laundry detergent substitute. Nellies Laundry Soap works!

With a higher pH level and better cleaning properties, washing soda cleans in all water temperature ranges. How to Make Washing Soda

It is possible to make washing soda out of baking soda. You will need to heat baking soda to cause a chemical release of water molecules and carbon dioxide. Make sure the kitchen and oven area is well-ventilated. Do not breathe in the fumes.

Supplies Needed

2 cups baking soda

Baking dish (non-aluminum)



Preheat the oven at 400°F.

Spread baking soda evenly over the baking dish.

Bake for one hour.

Remove baking dish from oven

Using a non-aluminum spoon, stir the baking soda.

Once more, evenly spread out the baking soda in the baking dish.

Return to oven to bake for another hour at 400°F.

Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.

You now have washing soda. The coloration will now have a yellowish cast to it and have a grainy texture.

Wear rubber gloves when handling.

Store in an airtight plastic, glass, or stainless steel container until needed.

Clearly label the container and storage so children and pets cannot access.
