Cathy's RV Laundry Soap

Cathy Lea.
Every RVer that travels long enough knows they will eventually run out of clothes and need to do laundry. I made the mistake of buying the tiny single serving size soaps sold at the laundromat (wash-a-teria) my first time out. That was an unexpected extra expense that is very easy to avoid with a little preparation. In addition I noticed that we tend to be more active while traveling with all the walks, hikes and general wandering around gawking at beautiful scenery which makes for a stronger dirty clothes aroma than a typical load of laundry at home. So I had to tweak my normal laundry additives to match.

This is my recipe for super charging laundry on the road. I buy the large laundry soap containers at Costco, so there is always plenty to make a batch of this before each trip. The secret ingredient is baking soda to tame strong odors leaving my clothes smelling nice.
  • 1 scoop laundry soap
  • 1/2 scoop of Oxy Clean powder
  • 1/2 scoop of baking soda
  • small zip-top bags
I use the same scoop I use at home for laundry soap to measure out the ingredients into individual zip-top baggies. One bag for each load goes into the laundromat with me so I don't have to lug a big box of stuff along with my clothes.
