I found a recipe 3 or so years ago that I use and I love it. So I thought I would share what I do in a visual way so that those who are visual learners, like me will maybe learn something simple yet basic.
The ingredients are:
Fels Naptha or Zoot or Octagon laundry soaps
Items I use:
A big pot
2 1 gallon jugs
While the soap is dissolving I fill my jugs with 3 quarts of cold water each.
Here is the finished product on my shelf. Shake each time you use it to mix it up well or you'll have a glob at the top. I have gotten samples of liquid soaps in the mail and added it to the homemade soap and that has stopped it from clumping. But that takes away from the basic ingredients as well.
Making your own laundry soap saves money along with the feeling of self reliance. Its so easy my kids make it for me sometimes. This 2 gallon batch lasts me about 6 weeks and costs me less than a dollar to make. I use 1/2 cup of soap unless I have a really dirty load.
Have a Blessed Day
