A Friend of mine and my SIL made home made laundry soap.
I was a little skeptical about it. After much thinking and thinking about it.
I decided to make it, save money, be a Molly Homemaker.
Sure lets try it.
This is what you'll need; You can find everything you need at your local grocery store.
Here's the recipe:
1 bar Fels Naptha soap
1 cup washing soda
1/2 cup borax powder
Grate the soap and put it in a sauce pan. Add 6 cups water and heat it until the soap melts. Add the washing soda and the borax and stir until it is dissolved. Remove from heat. Pour 4 cups hot water into the bucket. Now add your soap mixture and stir. Now add 1 gallon plus 6 cups of water and stir. Let the soap sit for about 24 hours and it will gel. You use ½ cup per load.
Now, lets talk about how I thought it turned out,
I didn't care for it. I made a 5 gallon bucket full of this soap I didn't like. LOL talk about a waste.
I did use it, but ONLY when I was OUT of normal laundry soap.
I felt like it just didn't get our clothes clean and really didn't get stains out the first time through
WE ALL KNOW THAT I HAVE STAINS!
I spill EVERYTHING on me!!!
OK, so JUST because I didn't like it doesn't mean you won't. My SIL makes it all the time and she loves it.
Go ahead try it, then come back and let me know what you think.
