Make Your Own Laundry Soap! For pennies a load!! (approx 11 cents.. Yeah, really!!!)
How to use:
For 3 gallons regular strength:Add bag of grated soap to
a saucepan . Add a quart of water and heat, stirring occasionally until
dissolved. Add the bag of washing soda/ Borax and stir until it is dissolved.
In a 3-5 gallon bucket, pour about 6 cups of boiling water. Add the prepared mixture and stir well. Add remaining water and stir well.
Cover and let sit. .
If you do not have a lid for your bucket, or would like more manageable containers, pour into empty gallon jugs. Let sit overnight and in the morning the laundry wash will be thick and ready to use. Be sure and label properly.
Add ¾ cup to filling washer then add clothing. You will not see a lot
of suds which is not a problem, because it’s not the suds that do the cleaning, and this is a low sudsing soap.
1 gallon of concentrated wash:Follow directions above, only use 1 gallon total water. To use, add ¼ cup to your washer.
In Addition: As with all laundry cleaning aids, adjust the amount if you find you need to. You rarely need more and often less will work just fine. We all have different water, and each will affect how soap cleans, so adjust accordingly. If you desire a scent, you can add about an ounce to the mixture before covering it. HE washers: I have feedback from past customers that this soap works just fine.
Keep away from children, not for human consumption, as with all laundry washes, be conscientious of how you use it on fabrics..
Laundry Cream Soap
Loose the chemicals: This fabulous lemongrass and lavender scented laundry soap is a treat to use. I have had such success with everyday laundry as well as stains. Thankfully, it removed a puppy urine stain out of my new Laura Ashley bed spread (don't ask)! I was one happy woman let me tell you. I use as a paste until I can get to the wash or when there's an "oops" that could be devastating to your special something. Use 1 tablespoon for HE washers, and 1 and a half tablespoons for a regular wash. It melts easily under water. 64 tablespoons per quart.
Powdered Laundry Detergent
This Laundry aid is made extra special with the added ingredients of citric acid for chelating heavy metals, and hydrogen peroxide for whitening. The base is Blessed Creek soap, of course, washing soda and borax. 1 tablespoon per HE load and 1 1/2 tablespoons for a top load washer. Proper picture to come. One quart jar containing 64 tablespoons. Keep mixture dry.
