Homemade Laundry Soap

1/3 bar Fels Naptha Laundry Soap, grated

6 cups water

½ cup washing soda

½ cup borax

Heat 6 cups water and soap in a large pan until dissolved. Stir in washing soda and Borax.

Mix and heat until dissolved. Boil 15 minutes. Remove from heat. (It will have the consistency

of honey.*) In a 3 or 5 gallon bucket, add 1 quart of hot water. Then add the soap mixture. Mix.

Add enough cold water to make 2 gallons of the mixture. Mix until well blended. Let sit 24

hours. The soap will gel*. Use ½ cup for each load.

Here's the one I found for the toilet ring

Here's a whole list.  This is where I got the one I used on my walls.  It got the stains off wonderfully but remember it doesn't sanitize when you mix baking soada and vinegar because they cancel each other out.
