When it comes to making laundry detergent recipes, one of the questions I’m most often asked goes something like this:
“I make my own laundry detergent recipe for home and want to start my own business. The main ingredients I use are soap flakes and bi-carb soda. The consistency is a bit slimy, other than that it seems fine. Do you think I could start a business using this detergent formulation?”
I never like to be the bearer of bad news when I receive emails like this, but the answer in one word is: No

If we address the issue of the “slimy” consistency to begin with, there’s simply no way that retailers or consumers will feel confident with a laundry detergent recipe which does not equal (or surpass) the appearance of the laundry products with which they are already familiar. Slime simply does not inspire confidence.
However, the most important issue is the effectiveness of the laundry detergent recipe to perform the essential tasks involved in washing clothes.
A good laundry detergent formulation must do the following:
- Neutralize the acidity found in the soil (dirt) on most types of clothing.
- Remove oils and grease, rendering them dispersible in water
- Break down carbon, dust and clay particles, making them super fine.
- Keep the dirt that has been removed from the clothing in suspension, so that the particles don’t redeposit themselves during the rinsing cycle.
This is where homemade laundry detergent formulations simply don’t make the grade. While clothing may appear clean, there are usually not only particles of dirt which remain in the textile fibers, but also particles of soap and other ingredients. Both can contribute to the premature degradation of the fabrics in the clothing.
Additionally, homemade laundry detergent formulations can be damaging to washing machines.
I’ve written more about the problems with soap flakes in homemade laundry detergents in another post.
