Homemade Laundry Soap

homemade laundry soapHomemade laundry soap is something I didn’t think I would ever think of making.

But after watching this video, it looks easier than I ever imagined!  It doesn’t take that long to make, isn’t that hard, is much cheaper than what you buy at the store, and is ideal for those with sensitive skin.  Who would’ve thought?

Here is the recipe for making homemade laundry soap:

1 Bar Fels-Naptha 5 1/2 oz
1 Cup Borax
1 Cup Super Washing Soda
2 Tablespoons Tea Tree Oil
Water

  • Shred the bar of soap.
  • Add it to 6 cups warm simmering water. Takes about 5 min.
  • Pour melted soap and water mixture into a 5 gallon bucket filled half way with hot water.
  • Add cup of Borax and mix.
  • Add cup of Super Washing Soda and mix until everything is dissolved.
  • Add 2 Tablespoons Tea Tree Oil (This is optional).
  • Fill the bucket the rest of the way with water and stir. Place a lid on it and wait 24 hours.
  • After 24 hours remove lid and stir. It should look like gelatin.
  • Stir to break it up. You can leave it like it is and bottle it or add 5 gallons of water and bottle it.
  • Shake before each use.
I’ve been using this recipe for a few months now and my clothes are coming out softer than ever.  It works perfectly with my Homemade Fabric Softener recipe for total softness & fresh smelling clothes!

For someone who wasn’t good at making meals by scratch, I can’t believe I’ve progressed to now making laundry soap by scratch.  Now if only there was a way to make toilet paper…..
