For as long as I can remember, I have had sensitivities to many store bought products. I realized that certain ingredients would probably be the cause of the problem. So, I began creating my own waste free product “recipes” for body and household use. In the beginning, I wanted to clean my windows naturally… without harsh chemicals. I did some reading and researching. The first old school formula I found that made sense was vinegar and water. Wow! Clean windows without chemicals!
Then I began reading about petroleum-based ingredients. I didn’t need a degree in rocket science to figure out that I was wearing those petro-chemicals everyday. Yuck! Gross! Plastic Free Laundry soap was my next “product”.
My first recipes were straight off the internet. You’ve probably seen it; the Borax, Washing Soda and Fels Naptha soap. At that time, according to the internet; that was how to make “natural plastic free laundry soap”. Natural soap with man made chemicals? No! There had to be a better way. What did people use to clean their clothes a long long time ago? I researched and read everything I could find regarding natural ingredients and clothes cleaning. Finally I came upon real natural ingredients. I’m talking yucca root, hazelnuts and soap nuts. Yep, I would start washing my clothes with nuts and berries.
For 1,000’s of years before me, that’s what people did to get clean clothes. My interest was as high. I scoured the internet and library for details. What I was learning would eventually hone my eco-skills and turn me into a daily eco-warrior.
The more I learned, the more I reworked my formulas! It felt good putting the ancient and eco-friendly cleaning ingredients to use. I formulated and tested. Load after load. Small changes… big changes. When finally, I did it…no more borax or washing soda…or Fels Naptha! The new formula worked. I worked on white clothes and clothes with color. It worked on clothes made of all types of fabrics. The clothes emerged from the washing machine like a Phoenix rising from the ashes — ok, so maybe it was more like a clean shirt emerging from the dryer.
The formulation worked and it was here to stay!
I am extremely proud of my efforts to get a liquid laundry plastic free laundry soap into a concentrated paste form. There is nothing like these products on the market.
