These DIY laundry cleaners combine detergent, stain remover and fabric softener in 1



Laundry doesn’t have to be a chore. Instead of carrying detergent, stain remover, fabric softener, and your laundry at washing machine, there’s a homemade laundry bomb that does it all. You can buy the basic ingredients at your local grocery store for a few dollars, which makes these little helpers really economical. Perfume with your favorite Essential oil for a personalized scent, and you’re ready to wash! Follow these step-by-step instructions to make these powerful, efficient, and affordable laundry bombs.

What you will need:

  • Small mixing bowl

  • Grated

  • 3 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide

  • 2 tablespoons of Epsom salts

  • 1/4 cup vinegar

  • 15-20 drops of essential oil

  • 1/2 cup of Fels-Naptha

  • 1 1/2 cup baking soda

  • Cooking plate

  • Parchment

  • Measuring spoons


  1. Grate the Fels-Naptha into the mixing bowl and add the baking soda and Epsom salts. Fels-Naptha is a laundry soap that does a great job of attacking stains and cleaning your laundry. The increase in all-natural washing soda softens the water while washing clothes. And Epsom salts reduce static cling and also soften fabrics after clothes are put in the dryer.

  2. Now add the hydrogen peroxide and stir things up. Hydrogen peroxide naturally whitens clothes and keeps your colors fresh. Stir in the vinegar, which removes stains while leaving clothes soft. Then perfume with a few drops of your favorite essential oil.

  3. Once everything is incorporated, the mixture should look like wet sand and clump together when squeezed. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, then use a 1 tbsp round measuring spoon to scoop up the mixture, press against the side of the bowl, then tap the pan. Finish with a quick spritz of equal parts vinegar and water. Let stand eight hours before use.

  4. Your laundry bombs are ready to be thrown in the washing machine! Use one tower for small loads and two for washing a lot of laundry. You’ll love how they freshen up your clothes without all the extra cleaners!
