Kangen Laundry Detergent, #1

  • 1 cup soap nuts (You can find soap nuts online or in your local health food store)

Crush the soap nuts, then soak them in Kangen Water® overnight.

Blend the mixture the next morning. Let sit for a few hours, stirring occasionally.

Kangen Laundry Detergent, #2

  • 2 gallons Kangen Water®
  • 1 bar Beauty Water Soap

Heat Kangen Water® on your stove to 90-110 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the hot Kangen Water® in a large pail, and then add the melted soap. Stir well.

Add the baking soda, and keep stirring.

Add your favorite essential oil.

Use 1/2 cup to 1 cup per load.

Pour Kangen Laundry Detergent into recycled shampoo bottles (or other squeezable bottles) for storage.

Remember, if you plan on sharing your Kangen Laundry Detergent with other eco- and health-conscious people in your community, make sure to write down the contents of your all-natural detergent!

Stain Remover

Keep a spray bottle of Strong Kangen Water on hand for stains. It works amazingly well on oily stains and other food-based stains on clothing.

For stains on white clothing, add some lemon oil or lemon juice, spray on stained whites and line dry in the sun to remove stains.

For difficult and/or set-in stains:
Fill a bucket with Strong Kangen Water and soak whites overnight, then wash in washing machine the next day, and line dry in bright sunlight to whiten whites.

Homemade Dishwater Detergent

  • 1 cup washing soda
  • 1 cup Borax (ONLY if you have well water)
  • 2 Tablespoons sea salt


Thoroughly mix together and keep in an air-tight container. Add 1 to 2 Tablespoon of the mixture to each load. If your dishes are cloudy, add a little vinegar or a small drop of Strong Kangen Water Dish Soap (below) to the rinse cycle to reduce cloudiness.

Strong Kangen Water Dish Soap

  • 3 Tablespoons liquid castile soap (see below)
  • 2 cups Strong Kangen Water
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable glycerine
  • 2 Tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice
  • 10 drops essential oil (optional)


Combine in recycled dish soap bottle and shake to blend.

Kangen Water® Liquid Castile Soap1

  • 16 oz Sunflower Oil
  • 5.5 oz Potassium Chloride
  • 16 oz distilled Kangen Water® (collected with a steam boiler)
  • 40 oz Kangen Water®
  • Essential Oil (optional)


Pour the sunflower oil into a crock pot, with the heat on high. In a separate bowl, mix the potassium chloride with the distilled Kangen Water®. This mixture will become a lye. Add the lye to the crock pot. Mix together using a hand-held stick blender on low until you create a paste. Pour the regular Kangen Water® into the crock pot and combine using the stick blender.

Check the crock pot every hour. If the paste is separating, mix it with the stick blender. If not, stir with a wooden spoon. The consistency will change from a paste to something resembling applesauce. If it ever looks sticky and hard like taffy, use a potato masher to break it up. Once the mixture resembles petroleum jelly, your liquid castile soap is almost done.

Not you must test the soap to see if it is done. Boil some Kangen Water® in a kettle and measure 2 oz into a clear measuring cup along with 1 oz of the soap mixture. Stir it with a spoon until the soap dissolves in the water. If it is cloudy, the soap is ready. If the mixture appears milky, the soap has not cooked long enough and needs to go back to the crock pot.

Once the consistency of the mixture is a bit cloudy, you can add a few drops of essential oil for a light scent. 6-8 drops is usually enough.

Pour warm liquid castile soap into bottles and allow to cool before using.
