Just made my own laundry detergent.. added recipe

Posted by   + Show Post

I have a small load of some old clothes in the washer..

anyone makes their own laundry soap??

 

Here is the recipe.. I copied if from a you tube video.. there a 100 of recipes so if this one doesnt suit you maybe another will maybe they wont at all...

You need

5 gallon bucket

1 bar of soap (they said any soap is fine)

Arm+Hammer Washing soda (not get it confused with baking soda)

Borax

Grater

Put 4 cups of water in pan, put on stove, Grate soap put grated soap in boiling water (take your time doing that) add about 3 gallon of warm water into bucket

1 cup washing soda

1/2cup of borax 

add everyhing (they recommend to start with the soapy water first)

stir and let it set for 24h.. ( I couldnt wait that long)

it will have a jello like touch...

Have fun making

kudos hun! Yayy! I cant wait to see the post!

Quoting celestegood:

 I wonder, though-has anyone made both?  If so, which worked better?


Anyhow, I've had my own washer/dry for years, and I should make my own on a routine basis.  No reason not to.


I'll make a post when I finally do make my own!


Quoting powow65:

Quoting celestegood:

 I think I'll do a post asking if anyone has made both,and which worked best for them.

I have four boys, and trust me when I say, the stains are many and varied!  lol
