Homemade Laundry Soap

Here is the recipe I am currently using for my laundry soap. Well, I actually cut this recipe in half so I could store it in a gallon size container. It's so easy!

You will need:

1 bar of soap

2 gallons of hot water

2 cups of Baking Soda (not washing soda)

Step one:

Grate the soap with your cheese grater.

Next, cover the grated soap with water and heat on low until most of the soap is dissolved.

Put the hot water in a container and add the melted soap.
Stir well.
Add the Baking Soda, stir again.

And your done! That's it!

You will need 1/2 cup per regular load and 1 cup for heavily soiled laundry.

Over time, your laundry soap will separate and become kind of goopy. All you need to do is stir before use. Or you can store the homemade soap in an old detergent container and shake before use. Those even have the handy little measuring caps!
