Our natural, Goat Milk Laundry Soap is a healthier alternative to store bought laundry detergents that contain harsh chemicals. Combining our signature goat milk soap with other ingredients, like borax, washing soda, and baking soda, results in a laundry powder that will keep your clothes clean without binding to the fabric and causing skin irritations. Not only does this powdered laundry soap use real ingredients for great results, it is also better for your washing machine, and the environment!

Benefits of Goat Milk Laundry Soap

Commercial laundry detergents contain many nasty chemicals that bind to your clothing to leave a scent or promote an illusion of whiteness, which can then cause skin irritation. Goat Milk Laundry Soap is a cleaner alternative that will not bind to your clothing, so it will not irritate your skin. Every ingredient in this laundry soap is focused on a clean wash, rather than optical illusions. Whether you use this on your daily clothing or your sheets and towels, it will reduce the risk of skin rashes caused by chemicals bound to your clothing. And while it is gentle on your skin, your clothes will still be fresh and clean. Goat Milk Laundry Soap also is better for your washer and the environment, due to the natural ingredients and minimal amount required per load.

Our Ingredients: Why Buy Natural Laundry Soap from Us

Our natural laundry soap steers clear of any unwanted chemicals and sticks to goat milk soap, borax, washing soda, and baking soda. Commercial detergents use ingredients called optical brighteners, which claim to brighten clothes and produce white laundry. But they do this not by cleaning, but by binding to the clothes and reflecting light to make the fabric look whiter. Our laundry soap is all about an efficient, clean wash and that’s it, so none of the ingredients will bind to your clothes. Goat Milk Laundry Soap is made with ingredients that are all about keeping clothes clean without the optical illusions of store-bought detergent. Each ingredient plays a critical part in washing your clothes: washing soda and baking soda fight odors and naturally soften fabric, our signature goat milk soap gets clothes clean, and borax whitens and naturally disinfects clothes.

Powdered Laundry Soap vs Liquid Laundry Detergent

Our powdered laundry soap is a bit different from standard, store-bought liquid detergent. In addition to being chemical free, it also works a bit differently. In general, the Goat Milk Laundry Soap will not suds or bubble as much as a typical store-bought detergent may, though it will still clean your clothes just as effectively without these bubbles. The powdered laundry soap should go in the soap dispenser, as it may not dissolve completely when placed directly in the washer with the clothes.

Laundry Soap Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Loads of Laundry Can I Wash With Goat Milk Laundry Soap?

This depends on what size goat milk laundry soap you purchase, and what type of laundry machine you have. Our natural laundry soap comes in three sizes: Trial (3 oz.) =~ 5 Tbsp. Regular (10 oz.) =~ 20 Tbsp. Refill (5 lbs.) =~ 160 Tbsp.

For high efficiency and front-loading machines, use 1 Tbsp. For regular washing machines, use 2 Tbsp. If your laundry is particularly dirty, use a heaping Tbsp. Depending on your machine and the dirtiness of your laundry, you may get up to 20 washes with our Regular size.

Why Should I Use Natural Laundry Soap?

While mass-produced laundry detergents are tempting due to their ease and claims of bright, white clothing, they are filled with harsh chemicals. This includes optical brighteners that bind to your clothes to alter the way they reflect light. Optical brighteners are made up of chemical compounds, and usually are not even listed on the ingredient list. Since they bind to the fabric, they regularly come into contact with your skin, and due to their harsh ingredients, can cause rashes and irritations to the skin. Natural Laundry Soap does not contain these unhealthy chemicals.

Natural laundry soap is safer for the environment, since there are no harsh, non-biodegradable chemicals entering the water supply. Natural laundry soap also leaves fabrics feeling soft, even when line dried, unlike detergents with optical brighteners.

Is Goat Milk Soap Safe For The Laundry Machine And Septic System?

Yes! It is actually better for your washing machine (especially high efficiency washers). This powder can be used with hot or cold wash cycles, and should go directly in the soap dispenser. While some people choose to add it directly to their clothes, we do not recommend this because it may not fully dissolve when placed directly with the clothes.

Septic experts generally tell people to avoid using powdered laundry soap for two reasons: Too much is often used and then does not dissolve properly. Many 'bargain' powders have large amounts of non-biodegradable fillers, such as clay, which will clog the pores in the soil of your drain field. The good news is that our Goat Milk Laundry Soap requires a small amount of powder per load, so it completely and easily dissolves, even in high efficiency washers that use far less water. We also don’t add any fillers that will lead to premature septic failure. With this in mind, you can continue to use our Goat Milk Laundry Soap that you've come to love with confidence!

Is Goat Milk Laundry Soap Safe for Baby’s Clothes and Cloth Diapers?

While Goat Milk Laundry Soap is focused on keeping clothes clean (which is perfect for all the messes that babies create), its natural ingredients do not use chemicals to create the illusion of bright, white laundry. This means there are no chemical irritants that may bind to your baby’s clothes and cause rashes on their sensitive skin. Our natural laundry soap is something you can feel good using on all your baby related clothing and fabrics.
