Homemade laundry soap

Making your own laundry soap is really easy. You will only need 3 ingredients.
Washing soda
Fel-naptha bar soap

The ratio is 1 cup grated soap, 1/2 cup washing soda and 1/2 cup borax.

Grate the soap.

Then mix everything together.
I have found that 5 bars of soap and a box of each borax and washing soda make a batch of laundry soap. It makes almost 2 gallons of dry soap.
Use a tablespoon per load of laundry. Great for front loading washers. Its also dye and fragrance free. Which is great for me since Ben is allergic to something in most laundry detergents.

Back for a bit....

Sorry I have been gone for so long..... No excuses but, we bought a house and are having a baby! So we have been a bit busy to say the least. I will be back soon with some house pictures and baby projects. I probably will be in and out for a while since the baby is due at the end of February and that will consume all of my time.
