This recipe is simple and makes a lot of laundry soap at a tiny cost.
The picture shows half the recipe I usually make, I didn’t have enough Borax. So you can see why I make laundry soap once every couple of months for the cost of one jug of the traditional commercial kind 🙂
My clothes look, smell, and clean just as good as the expensive stuff!
3 cups Borax
3 cups Super Washing Soda (sometimes I just throw in the whole box and a lil extra borax)
2 bars Fels-Naptha (5.5 oz) OR 3 bars ivory soap (3.1 oz) OR 1 1/2 bars Zote (7 oz) or 3/4 bar (14oz)
Grate or grind soap then mix with borax and super washing soda! It’s really simple and soooo cheap!
Borax and Super Washing Soda can be found in the laundry aisle. I like Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda.
I recommend experimenting with the different soaps because some have no smell, others do. Some grind up easily, others are a little tougher. See what works best for you 🙂
If you tend to wash on cold and you notice clumps of soap that didn’t dissolve, try washing on warm or use a different soap or grind it again. If you’re still struggling I will be posting a liquid recipe soon, so sit tight 🙂
