What Is Rumplemintz?
Rumplemintz is a fun, easy-to-make DIY laundry detergent that will leave your clothes smelling great! It’s perfect for small apartments or dorm rooms, and it requires just three ingredients: baking soda, washing soda, and water. Simply mix together the ingredients in a bowl, store the mixture in an airtight container, and use as needed.
To make rumplemintz, start by mixing together 1 cup of baking soda and ½ cup of washing soda in a bowl. Add enough water to make a soft dough. Use your hands to form the dough into small pellets, about the size of peas. Store the pellets in an airtight container for future use.
To use rumplemintz, simply add enough of the mixture to your washing machine to cover your clothes. Be sure to set your wash cycle to “heavy duty” or “fast cycle” so that the baking soda can effectively break down sweat and other impurities on your clothes. If you have hard water, be sure to pre-treat your clothing with a water softener before adding the rumplemintz mixture.
How to Make Your Own Rumplemintz
Making your own Rumplemintz is easy and fun! All you need are some basic ingredients, a spoon, and some time. Here’s how to do it:
1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup of baking soda and 1/2 cup of washing soda. Stir until the powders are combined.
2. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups of water and the baking soda mixture. Stir until the powders are dissolved.
3. Add the oxyclean to the washing soda mixture, and stir until well combined.
4. Pour the mixture into a funnel or a pitcher with a spout, and fill up your wash containers as needed (you will likely only need about 1/3 cup per load). Label your containers with the contents and date, so you don’t have to remember what goes where!
What are the Benefits of Making Your Own Laundry Detergent?
Making your own laundry detergent is a great way to save money and get the cleanest clothes possible. Here are some of the benefits of making your own:
You’ll save money. Store-bought laundry detergent can be expensive, and making your own will cost you less than buying it prepared.
You’ll get cleaner clothes. Homemade laundry detergent is made with ingredients that are effective at cleaning clothes and getting rid of dirt, oil, and other stains.
You’ll have more control over the ingredients. Many store-bought laundry detergents contain harsh chemicals that can damage fabrics and cause skin irritation. You can make your own laundry detergent using natural ingredients that are safer for your clothes and skin.
Making your own laundry detergent is a great way to keep your home clean and healthy!
Final Thoughts on Making Your Own Laundry Detergent
There are a few things you’ll need to make your own laundry detergent: Detergent, Borax, and Washing soda. If you have hard water, add a cup of Epsom salt to the mixture. You can also find pre-made detergents at most stores, but homemade is always better in our opinion!
To make the detergent, mix together 1 cup of washing soda with 4 cups of hot water. Stir in 1/2 cup of borax until dissolved. Let the detergent cool before using it.
To use the detergent, fill a bucket with enough cold water to cover the bottom of your washer. Add about 2 tablespoons of detergent to your washer’s load and swish it around for about 30 seconds. Load your wash and wait about 15 minutes before checking it to see if there’s any suds left on your clothes. If not, add more detergent and repeat the process.
