Laundry Soap Recipe
3 TBSP Dish Soap
3 TBSP Washing Soda
3 TBSP Borax
I recycled a detergent jug I had just finished off using to put my new homemade laundry soap in. [It helps if you have a funnel and a tea kettle.]
What To Do
Using a funnel, put the TBSP's of dish soap, washing soda and borax in your jug. Heat a few cups of water up in a tea kettle. Once the water is ready, fill the jug up about halfway. Put the cap back on and shake it up a bit so the ingredients will dissolve. Let it cool off at bit, cause it gets pretty hot, then pour enough cold water to fill up the rest of the jug. And, it's ready to use!
Tips: Dish soap we use is Palmolive with Oxy. It's done the job very well at getting out all our stains and spots. Have only had to use Shout once! You could buy a more sweet smelling dish soap to make your clothes smell extra special. & I either fill the cap all the way up or halfway. It depends on how large the load is.
Personally we love this recipe, it works great for us and we will keep using it!
It took me a while to search online and find a grate free recipe. I only ended up finding one at the time. On this blog here: one good thing by jillee Looks to be a cool blog, you should check it out.
Right! What do I use for softener? I bought a couple of laundry balls at the grocery store for a couple bucks. They do the job! Our clothes come out dry and soft. They do like to play hide n seek in the clothes.
