Homemade laundry soap

Homemade has become a passion of mine so I thought I would share my favorite recipe for laundry soap. It is amazing how much stuff we buy from stores that we can easily make at home. Like all purpose cleaner, window cleaner, dish soap, wood cleaner, etc. It is better for our families and the environment. I have lots of other recipes if anyone is interested. Also it saves money! The laundry soap only cost 1 pretty penny per load!!

3t Naptha Soap Grated
4t Washing Soda
4t Borax
5 Cups Container cold water
3/4 cup hot water
Any essential oil you like for sent

Cook the hot water and naptha grated soap on low until it has dissolved. Add washing soda and borax. Stir until thicker. Add to your container and then add cold water and essential oils. Shake, let sit over night and then shake one last time. Then enjoy!!

Grating the soap

After you are done cooking it on the stove pour it into any container. I use old laundry soap containers. It keeps them out of landfills and also they work great!

All Done. I have learned many things are much easier than they seem!

Hi Tiffany! I didn't know you had a blog. Thanks for commenting on mine. I always wonder who read it, and when you comment I know! :)

BTW- I'm so jealous you have an incubator with eggs! HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!?!

I found the washing soda at Bel Air. I know that there has to be a cheaper place but I have not found one yet. Oh I bet Winco would have some (wal-mart does not). For the soap shavings you can use sent free dove if you want to go the cheapest or the other soap is at any natural food store. Good luck!

I found your post linked at progressive pioneer and was wondering how much laundry soap you have to use per load?
