I've read a lot about the homemade laundry soap and last month I made the first batch. When I searched for a formula for powdered soap, I found out there were many options. So I just tried the one I felt it was more convenient from the comments. But I am not quite content with the quality of it. The laundry doesn't come out as clean as I would like, hard soils for example are not completely clean. Just needed some feedback if you are using the homemade laundry soap. Here is the formula I used: 1 cup shredded soap bar, 1/2 cup borax, 1/2 cup washing soda. The recommended dosage for 1 laundry was 1 TBS and for soiled laundry 3 TBS.Answer Question

I prefer the liquid homemade laundry soap. Here's one recipe for it:
This is the one closest to the recipe I use but my recipe uses a little more washing soda and borax and 5 gallons of hot water.

I use the recipe on this site : http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/laundrysoap.htm. I double the borax and washing soda and have no problems with stains. When it comes to stubborn stains, I always pretreat ahead of time!
