How-to:

  • Combine the baking soda, castile soap, and Epsom salts in a mixing bowl. This will act as the base for your soap and these ingredients do a great job of attacking stains and cleaning fabric.
  • Add the hydrogen peroxide and vinegar while continuously stirring the mixture. Hydrogen peroxide naturally whitens clothes and keeps colors vibrant while the vinegar kills any forming odors.
  • Once everything is mixed together, you should have something that resembles wet sand. Cover a sheet pan with parchment paper then use a 1-tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop up the mixture.
  • Finish off by spritzing the soap balls with a mixture of equal parts water and vinegar to hold it together. Let it set overnight before using.

RL Tip: To use, throw one ball in the washing machine for small loads and two when washing lots of clothes. This can help you keep clothes clean, smelling fresh, and stain-free!
