Hey, I'm making my own laundry soap today. This is the 2nd time I've made it. The first time I only made 1/2 batch but this time I'm making the whole enchilada! The recipe I use is below. I did a little re-writing to utilize the "tricks" I came up with. Without further ado, here it is:
Ingredients:12 cups Borax
8 cups Baking Soda
8 cups Washing Soda
8 (grated) bars Ivory soap
The easiest way to grate your soap is to use the food processor. Just don't drop the processor like I did the 1st time--making my 1/2 batch a rather costly endeavor! This only takes a few minutes to make so even the busy career
lady person can make it in her his/her busy schedule (I'm trying to be politically correct here). :)
- Mix all ingredients well and store in a sealed tub.
- Use 1/8 cup (2 Tablespoons) of powder per full load. A coffee scoop works really well for this. I got a package of 2 at the Dollar Tree for a buck.
- This is a "dry" product so there is no mixing with water. The last time I packaged mine in gallon food storage bags. This time I'm going to use a plastic container.
This stuff is lots better than the commercial products I've used and you only use 2 Tbsp per load!
Happy Laundry Days!
