Homemade Clothes Soap
Everyone is making their own laundry soap these days, including me who has already shared one recipe but I must share this better one today, it's for dry laundry soap, which is easier to store than all those jugs of the liquid batch I made as a first timer. I'm sharing because I LOVE this soap, it smells AMAZING! I've given samples away to all the kids who can't get over how nice it smells! And it works GREAT!! Even works on my husband's dirty work clothes, he's a welder and often comes home grimy, so I'm happy and I'm saving money!!
Homemade Laundry Soap
1 bar Fels Naptha soap
1 c. Washing soda
1 c. Borax
Grate bar soap then run it through the food processor to get it fine. Mix all ingredients in big bowl really well, store in pretty jar. Use 1 Tbsp. per load.
The original recipe comes from Tip Junkie along with the photo but I broke it down to a small batch, if you'd like their big batch recipe, look it up there. With everything going up in price, it only makes sense to find ways to make some of these products at home, and there are tons of info. out there to do so! Tip Junkie is a good place to start! I'm off to do some laundry! lol
