I've had a few inquiries about the laundry soap I make. I really like it, except for the fact that it doesn't have any scent to it, hence the reason I was shopping at the soap making store!!!
Homemade Laundry Soap
1 C grated bar soap- Fels Naptha, Ivory, Dove 1 bar usually gives you 2-2/12 cups of soap.
1/2 C Borax
1/2 C Washing Soda This is made by Arm and Hammer, but is
Not baking soda!!! I can only find this at
Fred Meyer or online.
Mix all together and store in an airtight container...or a pretty jar!!!
Use 1 Tbs. for a regular load or up to 2Tbs for a larger or very dirty load.
I use this in my HE front loader and it does just fine.
When I make this recipe I like to do a lot at once and then I use this recipe:
2 bars soap, grated
4 c Borax
4 c Washing soda
I'm going to add the oils to it to see if I get a scent...I really miss the smell of Tide!!!!
There is a liquid version if you prefer. You can go over to www.farmingonfaith.blogspot.com. Carrie has a lot of great homemade cleaning recipes, but this is the only one I have tried.
