Making Homemade Laundry Soap
Ok I know what you are thinking--WHY? Once you use it you
will know why. I do not pretreat my clothes. The clothes come out softer. The colors stay true. The cost is about $ .15 per load (WOW). My daughter is sensitive to many soap products and it does not bother her skin. It does not sud--so it is good for HE machines. It is good for the enviroment. It smells yummy and it looks so darn cute in my laundry room!!! The recipe is:
Large Batch (Powder Form)
6 bars Fels-Naptha (shredded)
3 cups Washing Soda (Arm and Hammer--NOT BAKING SODA)
3 cups Borax
Mix in a large bowl. Store in a covered container.
Small Batch (Powder Form)
1 bar Fels-Naptha (shredded)
1/2 cup Washing Soda
1/2 cup Borax.
Mix in a bowl. Store in a covered container.
There is a liquid form also, the recipe can be found on http://www.soapsgonebuy.com/. You can also buy all of the products. You should be able to find Washing soda and Borax at your local Wal-Mart. The Fels-Naptha is the one item that might be hard to find (you can buy it at this site as well--already shredded).
