Thermomix low sudsing washing powder

This recipe is called Nikki’s homemade laundry powder and you can see the original post here on Simone’s Thermomix Essentials another wordpress site 🙂

Unfortunately there is not a reblog option on the post but I have it on good authority from many of the Southern SA Thermomix Team that this recipe is the best one out there, clothes smell fabulous, wash brilliantly, great on sensitive skin, cheap, easy to make and best of all can be used in all kinds of machines including front loaders and the new style low sudsing top loaders like mine.


770 grams Lectric washing soda                                                                                3 bars of Velvet soap, roughly chopped
30 ml Bluo
1 tsp lavender oil (or essential oil of choice)


Add Velvet soap bars to TM bowl and process for 30 seconds on speed 9.
Add Lectric washing soda and mix for 30 seconds on speed 9. While mixing, add in Bluo and lavender oil.

General Tips

Add ¼ cup to a 7 kg wash load.
Suitable for front and top loading washing machines.
Bluo can be omitted but is great for white washes.

Thanks Nikki and Simone for sharing this fabulous laundry powder recipe!

    Thanks for this. I have been using the Domestic diva u leashed one in my front loader and found that some of my son’s clothes aren’t getting quite clean enough )he is crawling like mad now). Will have to try this one.

    Any idea if I could use it on my son’s modern cloth nappies?

    1. No idea Jessica, being all natural I think they would be ok on MCN’s, I would be interested to hear how it goes if you give it a try 🙂

        I think it should be fine but the bluo is a whitener/brightener which is my concern as this can leave a coating or film on the nappies. Will make this once I’m done with my current batch. Thanks again.

  2. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
