Easy Homemade Laundry Soap

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.
Add
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.

    I have very hard water and it leaves my cloths looking dingy and yellow.(I don’t wash my good cloths or whites at home as it ruins them) Do you know how well this would work or do you have any other suggestions.
    Best of luck on your new adventures!!!

      I have bought it at the grocery store many times. Look in the laundry and cleaning aisle. They typically do not put it at eye level because its not an overly common item, so look high and low. I have bought it at Kroger and Rural King…..

I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would value your work.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos
