This version is not meant to be stored. It is recommended to prepare 100mL and to used it directly in the washing machine. For storage, I recommend the dry version.

 

2. Powder laundry care

Ingredients Q (g) Function
Soap 40 Detergent
Washing soda 40 Detergent
Borax 19 Preservative, whitening
Essential oils 1 Fragrance

If you don’t have any washing soda (sodium carbonate), you can substitute it by baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), but you need to add twice the amount, as it’s less effective.

The powder version can be stored up to 1 year.

The white vinegar can be added as fabric softener in the rinsing container of the washing machine, about 10 cL (1/2 cup) for a full drum.

All oxidative agents including borax are not natural.
