Here is the recipe for homemade soap using basic household ingredients! have fun with this, and check out this generous Etsy seller!!!
Here are two recipes I use for laundry soap, one is a powder and the other liquid:
~*~Dry Laundry Soap~*~
-1 bar of Ivory Soap (or another soap that doesn’t leave residue)
-1 cup of Borax
-1 cup of Washing Soda (I found mine at a small grocery store but not at Walmart… But that might be different where you live)
**Grate the soap on a small hole grater. Mix soap, borax and washing soda together with a spoon until thoroughly mixed. Put in a ice cream bucket or any other container with a lid.
Use a 1 Tablespoon to 2 Tablespoon per load depending on the size and dirtiness of the load.
~*~Liquid Laundry Soap~*~
-1 bar Ivory Soap
-1/2 cup Borax
-1/2 cup Washing Soda
-6 cups of water
**In a large pot start to boil water. Meanwhile, grate Ivory soap and add to the water and stir until dissolved. In a 2 gallon bucket, mix borax and washing soda together. Slowly add water/soap mixture to the bucket while mixing. Now add one gallon plus four cups more of water and mix. Add scent that you like to the mixture such as lavender essential oils if you want. Let sit for 24 hours until slightly gelled. Use 1/2 cup per load. I like to keep mine in plastic gallon jugs so it’s easy to pour and keep.
