It comes as no surprise that powdered detergent is a mainstay in every Filipino laundry area. Unlike its liquid counterpart, it is the cheaper option and it can be used in more ways than one.

What you need:


How-to:

  1. Cut the bars of soap into large chunks then place it inside the food processor together with the washing soda.

  3. Pour into a clean and dry container or jar.
  4. Use as you would store-bought detergent.
