I love this! So simple & easy. Homemade liquid laundry soap! I had shared how to make laundry soap before but I want to add different variations to choose from at the site. I want to bring another great blogger to the spot light today. Visit Grace to see all of her upclose photos on how to make this soap at Queen Of The Red DoubleWide. I just love her blog. She is a Christ following lady who shares her rural homemaking adventures with us!
Homemade Liquid Laundry Detergent
Print Author: Queen Of The Red Doublewide Ingredients
1 bar of Fels Naptha Laundry soap
1 cup of Borax
1 cup of Washing Soda
3 gallons of water
10-20 drops of essential oil (optional)
Start by grating the bar of soap. Then melt the grated soap in 1 gallon of water on medium low heat. Do not boil and stir often. When the soap has melted add 1 cup of borax and 1 cup of washing soda and stir until dissolved. Pour your soap mixture into a big bucket (something that holds more than 3 gallons) and add 2 more gallons of water. Now add an essential oil of your choice if you would like and stir well. Let it set over night. It will gel up and separate over night so stir and stir or use an immersion blender to make it nice and smooth.
