How to make high quality and affordable homemade neutral detergent

Detergent is an essential cleaning item that allows us to keep our house hygienic. It can be made at home, producing similar or even better effects without spending a lot of money.

It is a great degreaser, and just a few drops produce a lot of foam due to its combination of components, which we will provide here.

To prepare this homemade detergent, you will need:


  • 1 liter of Neutral detergent
  • 1 1/2 liters of Room temperature water
  • 2 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Salt
  • 60 g Glycerin Soap
  • Food coloring and soap mold (optional)


  1. Start by grating or cutting the glycerin soap into small pieces.
  2. Place two tablespoons of sugar and the soap pieces in a pan and set the heat to medium. Gradually add half a liter of water, stirring constantly.
  3. Continue stirring until all the sugar has dissolved, then let it rest for three hours or until the soap has melted.
  4. After this time, stir again.
  5. Pour in the remaining liter of water, mix quickly, and bring to a boil over moderate heat.
  6. Once it reaches boiling point, turn off the heat and add a tablespoon of salt. Make sure to stir the mixture until all the salt has completely dissolved.
  7. Next, incorporate a neutral detergent (it can be any brand and the most economical). Stir until it becomes a consistent and lump-free mixture.
  8. Now we can add the food coloring. Usually, these come with instructions on the amount to use for a certain number of liters.
  9. Cover the container with the mixture and place it in a location that is not too cold or too hot for 12 hours.
  10. After this time, stir one last time and pour it into several containers for storage.

And that’s how simple it is to make a quality and cost-effective homemade neutral detergent!
