This homemade laundry soap will save you loads of money
I have been making this detergent for about two years now and we love it! Clothes actually smell clean, not like the chemical scents that have been added to commercial detergents.
34 Cups Water
2 cups Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
2 cups 20 Mules Team Borax
One bar grated Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar Soap
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil.
Grate the Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar Soap.
Add the grated Fels-Naptha bar soap to the boiling water and dissolve over low heat. Take your time. Let it cool for about 10 minutes.
Pour soap & water mixture into a 5 gallon bucket. Then stir in the Washing Soda & Borax until it disappears.
Add the 30 cups of water to the mixture, combine and let it sit in the bucket overnight. The washing soda and Borax need to off gas. I put the detergent into old detergent and large vinegar bottles. I use a cup from an old laundry detergent bottle to measure out detergent. You will have to shake the bottle before using.
Since this is a very neutral smelling mixture your clothes will come out of the dryer smelling clean, not like chemicals. If you like a scent you can add several drops of an essential oil of your choice when add the detergent to the washer.
