Homemade Cloth Diaper Detergent - Recipe #2

I've heard that castile soap creates build-up on cloth diapers and reduces the absorbency, so I created another version of my cloth diaper detergent without the soap.

  1. Sodium Carbonate - 7 lbs for $9.07 (112 oz, $0.08/oz)
  2. Sodium Percarbonate - 6 lbs for $10.60 (96 oz, $0.11/oz)
  3. Sodium Bicarbonate - 13.5 lbs $6.59 (I bought this at BJs)  (216 oz, $0.03/oz)
The recipe:
2 cups sodium carbonate ($1.28)
2 cups sodium percarbonate ($1.76)
2 cups sodium bicarbonate ($0.48)

TOTAL: $3.52 to make 58 oz
USE: 2 tbsp, or 1 oz, per load = 58 loads
COST PER LOAD = $0.06
COST PER YEAR = $21.90
