So...it has happened....I ran out of soap last week. I ran out of clean socks over the weekend. So, today is the day. I made laundry soap. The first load is in the washer.
I was going to do the liquid soap, but ended up doing a batch of dry soap because it was quicker and I could use it today rather than waiting for it to "gel". (I really need socks!!)
I am going to try some of the other recipes I found but for now here it is:
1 bar fels-nap soap
1 cup 20-mule Borax soap
1 cup WASHING soda, (not baking soda)
(Of course, it would be easy to double, triple.....this recipe)
I used my salad shooter to grate the fels-nap soap, but it was very crumbly so I think it'd be pretty easy to do by hand.
Mix the three soaps all together, take a really BAD picture.
Put it in a container. I used one that has been put in the recycling bin so many times, but keeps getting pulled back out because I think of somthing I can use it for....now laundry soap.
You only use 2 TEASPOONS of soap per load of laundry. Yes, you read that right!! I have a 1/8 measuring cup that I have never used for...anything. Now it's in the laundry soap. I takes 1/16 of a cup per load.
That is cheap!
And that is something marked off my 101 in 1001 list!!
(I will post the other recipes as I try them.)
I think I will post this to the Blog Hop as well! I'm number #121 in the Barnyard Hop:
