I love to nurture nature, save money, and make something to use that really works! Why don’t you give these laundry soaps a try and let me now what you think.
Basic Laundry Soap Powder
Just double or triple the amounts to make larger quantities…..
1 cup washing soda
1 cup baking soda, optional: scent with essential oil of choice
1 cup soap flakes, (fels naptha bar works great; just grate)
Mix and store in a container with a tight fitting lid
Use 1/2 cup of mixture per washing load.
Try some white vinegar in the rinse water as fabric softner.
Liquid Laundry Soap from Bonnie Robbins
1/3 bar fels naptha soap (found in the laundry isle of the grocery store) grated
4 cups water
Mix until soap is dissolved.
1/2 c borax
1/2 c washing soda
1 1/2 gallon water
Mix well until all ingredients are incorporated. Set 24 hours then it is ready to use.
1/2 c per wash load or 1 c for heavy dirt items.
This can be stored in a 2 gallon plastic bucket. The soap will have a gel consistency.
