Homemade Laundry soap

So today I made LAUNDRY SOAP.  
"Why would I do this," you might ask.  
Well...


  1. It's Non-Toxic 
  2. Chemical Free
  3. Dye Free
  4. Quick & Easy to make
  5. and CHEAP!!!!
Here are a few cost comparisons:
  • Tide with Bleach powder.....$0.21 per load
  • Arm & Hammer liquid.........$0.21 per load
  • Homemade powder...............$0.05 per load

*This recipe makes 32 oz of detergent - $2.98 - 64 loads
*Use 1 TBSP per load- 2 for really dirty loads

Here is what I used:
Fels-Naptha = $1.99

[You can also use Pure & Natural, Zote, or an Ivery bar]


Step 1  
Grate the entire soap bar.


Step 2
Add 1 cup of Washing Soda


Step 3
Add 1 cup of BORAX

Step 4
Stir together

Step 5
Store it in a container and label it!
I don't want my kids sprinkling this over their tacos. 
It kinda look like grated cheese!

Next time I will make the liquid version of this homemade soap!
That's right.  Put those kids to work.  They'll love it!
