Homemade Chemical free Laundry Detergent.

posted Nov 18, 2015, 9:06 PM by GARY LEE   [ updated Feb 7, 2016, 7:15 PM ]

Here is a quick and simple recipe for a Homemade Chemical Free Laundry Detergent. 3 Tbsp of Castile Soap, 6 Tbsp of Borax, and 6 Tbsp Washing soda add this to a 1 gallon container along with 4 cups of hot water shake to mix and your done. This is what I use at home to wash my laundry and I love it. I honestly cant stand the smell of the store bought brands any more. Not to mention the insane amount of chemicals and in some cases narcotics that they contain, Yup! really look it up it's scary. I challenge every one who reads this to go natural for one year especially if you have unexplained respiratory problems or if you get dizzy, tired etc. It could be the chemicals. Get rid of the fabric softeners, please get rid of the dryer sheets, laundry detergents, basically anything in your home that contains artificial fragrance. I know I know but this stuff really is nasty and toxic. And it's totally possible to be chemical free. Just start slowly and switch out one product at a time. The internet is loaded with recipes and directions and there are plenty of company's out there that make natural and safe alternatives to all of the products that you are used to if your not in to making your own. You can even add natural scents from essential oils.

Here is a really informative article from a great site called They go on to say that according to the health and wellness website, some of the most harmful ingredients in dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener alike include benzyl acetate (linked to pancreatic cancer), benzyl alcohol (an upper respiratory tract irritant), ethanol (linked to central nervous system disorders), limonene (a known carcinogen) and chloroform (a neurotoxin and carcinogen), among others.

The dangers of a clogged dryer vent!

GLR Home Maintenance FL Dryer Vent Cleaning.

A clogged clothes dryer vent means more then just wet laundry.

Of course the worst thing that could happen with built-up lint clogging your dryers ducts and vents is a clothes dryer fire.

But there's a lot more...

If you have a clog in your dryer vent and duct that means the hot damp air that's supposed to be blown outside of your home is being pushed back into your dryer and home. Your laundry will not be dried if the damp air can't escape the inside of your dryer. This air has to go somewhere and will most likely end up in your laundry room, this can cause mold problems but if fire and mold isn't bad enough a lot of liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets sold these days contain toxic chemicals such as Chloroform, formaldehyde and Benzyl acetate, just to name a few, these chemicals can cause respiratory problems, dizziness and major life threatening diseases! I met a few customers on the job and while cleaning their dryer vents we talked and they told me they have unexplainable respiratory problems that there doctors just can't figure out for them, all of these customers had something in common very strong fragrances in there home, especially on the lint that I cleaned out from their dryer vents and ducts.

This scares me, I think these products have something to do with these unexplainable respiratory problems, so I make sure to take proper safety measures while preforming your dryer vent cleaning service. I wear a dust mask and gloves when working around these toxic chemicals. My customers are always happy to hear that the process I use for cleaning there dryer ducts keep all toxic lint contained, the lint I remove from there dryer duct goes strait from there duct into a sealed container. You can read more about how we clean your dryer vent and ducts on our webpage here: dryer-vent-cleaning-service.

Here is a great article from that explains what these laundry products really contain
and how much harm they are causing to unsuspecting consumers. There are many natural alternatives for doing laundry that you can purchase in health food stores and your local supermarket these days, I would recommend giving them a try, they work just as well as the toxic ones in my opinion. You can even make your own! Here is a good recipe from You will find a lot of information on these subjects if you google them. Look up Citric Acid powder for washing dishes and borax and washing soda for your laundry. If someone actually wanted my opinion on this subject I would recommend to stop using all toxic air fresheners, detergents, including smelly plugins, febreeze, liquid fabric softeners, dryer sheets, dishwasher detergents anything with artificial fragrances. The companies that make them are not required by law to print the full list of ingredients on there boxes and containers. We wouldn't buy there products if they did. So if your feeling a little off lately and your not sure why, try getting rid of these products for a year or so and see what happens, it can't hurt! Thanks so much for reading my article and Happy Drying from GLR Home Maintenance!
