Homemade Laundry Soap Recipe
« on: October 15, 2011, 05:47:39 AM »

Homemade Laundry Soap

1/2 bar Fels-Naptha soap, grated
1/2 cup washing soda
1/2 cup borax 

1. On your stovetop, place grated soap in a large pan with 6 cups of water and heat until
the soap melts.

2. Add washing soda and borax and stir until dissolved.  Remove from heat. 

3. Pour 4 cups hot water into the 4-gallon bucket.  Add soap mixture and stir well, then
add 1 gallon plus 6 cups of water and stir again until mixed well.

4. Let the soap sit for about 24 hours; it will congeal into a gel.

5. Stir the soap before each use. Use cup per load (a little more or a little less
depending upon how soiled your laundry is). 

Makes 1 batch = approx. 2 gallons (64 loads). Recipe may be doubled.

Please note: This is a low-sudsing soap, so you will not see bubbles or suds in the water.
The suds aren't what do the cleaning it's the ingredients!

Scented Soap: You may scent your laundry soap if desired; use 1/2-1 oz essential oil or
fragrance oil. DO NOT use soap scents as they will ruin your batch.

I use this laundry soap everyday.  A double batch 4 gallons costs less than $1.50 to make.
