I have wanted to make my own Laundry Soap for some time now and finally got around to purchasing all the supplies! I know many people make their own and I am behind in the game, but , hey, it's never too late, right?
I'm sorry, I can't remember where I got this recipe; somewhere in blogland!
This recipe calls for
1 box Borax (4lbs.)
1 box Arm and Hammer Washing Soda (4lbs.)
1 box Arm and Hammer Baking Soda (4lbs.)
3 Bars Fels Naptha (grated)
(I use one grater specifically for soap ~ do not use for food items after.)
A few drops of essential oil of your choice may be used, but I didn't use any because of the fragrance of the Fels Naptha. I didn't want too many. I didn't notice any fragrance after washing and drying~just nice and clean!
Mix all ingredients and store in an airtight container.
Use 1 Tablespoon for light soil
2-3 Tablespoons for heavy soil or hard water.
1/2 C. white vinegar makes a good fabric softener (leaves no smell!)
