    Wednesday, January 11, 2012 Homemade Laundry Soap This is way better then the store bought laundry soap. You only have to use 1 Tablespoon per load. This recipe made a bucket full of soap and is going to last a year I bet. I made mine last night and it was great - it smelled great, cost only about $20, and only took me about 15 min to make. I will never go back to store bought! Here is what you need: (via http://beingcreativetokeepmysanity.blogspot.com/2010/11/homemade-laundry-soap.html) 1 4 lb 12 oz box Borax (2.15 kg or 76 oz) found in the detergent isle 1 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda (1.81 kg) I found this in the detergent isle but could also be with the cooking stuff 1 box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 55 oz (3 lb 7 oz) found in the detergent isle 3 bars of Fels-naptha soap, found in the detergent isle 2 small containers of oxyclean or store brand oxyclean (try to get about 3.5 lbs total (1.58 kg)) found in the detergent isle. (I used only 1) (you can also use pink Zote soap instead of Fels-naptha. I had really wanted to but could not find it anywhere) You should be able to find all of these items at your grocery store. This detergent is fairly mild smelling, it is not over powering. If you love a strong scent you may have to add a fabric softener to each load.Start out by grating your Fels-naptha soap just like cheese. You can use a food processor or just use your hand held grater, what ever you have. **Don't worry the Fels-naptha will dissolve in your washer even if you only use cold water like me.** Toss all ingredients in a 5 gallon bucket lined with a garbage bag. This part makes your whole house smell great. Once everything is mixed store soap however you like. I used a cleaning bucket I found at walmart and used the scoop from inside the oxyclean.

According to one pinner: Holy Cow!!! This stuff is AWESOME!!! I only made 1/2 as much (I didn't have as much lemonade as I thought, oops). I will not be buying dishwasher soap ever again!!!! My tupperware looks brand new again!

dishwasher detergent:Dishwasher Detergent ingredients: 1 box Borax 1 box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 24 packages of unsweetened lemonade drink mix, like kool-aid. (**Note: lemonade will stain soap dispenser yellow, another option would be to use citric acid instead of lemonade) 3 cups Epsom Salt Lemi Shine rinse aid (this recipe does not work very well without it)

Link is irrelevant, Pinning the image... Use bakers twine & mini clothespins instead of sticky labels when giving jam & marmalade as gifts.

Do you make your own Homemade Laundry Soap? Do your friends and family think you're kinda crazy? :-) Give them a pretty sample jar of your homemade soap to try for themselves as a Christmas gift. They will soon see the light! ;-)

Will have to try this recipe next ~ not sure how she bought it all for less than $10, though ~ I think the soap alone is about $3-$4 a bar!! I will check it out, though!!
