Grate the ½ bar of soap over LARGE pot on low heat – you can split in two batches if you don’t have a large enough pot.
Add 5 cups of water.
Stir soap and water until dissolved on medium-high.
Add OxiClean and Washing Soda in mixture until dissolved
Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
(In Glass Jars)
Pour 4 cups hot water into each of the 3 jars.
Then add about 2 cups of the soap mixture into each bucket with 40 drops of any citrus essential oil.
Stir, then add enough cool water to fill each bucket.
Let each bucket thicken over night.
And don’t forget to stir before each use because the detergent may get lumpy or gelatinize.
Easy peesy!
Quick Note: Depending on whether you have a high-efficiency washer or not, you should use between1/4 – ½ cup scoop per load.

Homemade Oven Cleaner That Works


½ cup liquid soap
1 cup baking soda
½ cup hydrogen peroxide
2 tablespoon white vinegar [additional vinegar for rinse]
10 drops of lemon essential oil
10 drops of tea tree oil [optional]


Empty everything out of the oven including the racks.
Wipe the oven down with hot, soapy water.
Mix together all the ingredients to make a paste.
Spread the paste all over the inside of the oven except on the heating elements.
Let it sit for at least 4 hours; the longer you let it sit, the more it can work. You can leave it on overnight and it won’t hurt anything.
Remove the paste with a rag, brush, or scrub sponge.
You can do a final rinse with a mixture of ⅓ vinegar and ⅔ water in a spray bottle.
