I finally needed to make more laundry soap, so here is my recipe!
1 cup of castile soap
1/2 cup borax
1/2 cup washing soda or baking soda
1 tbsp for a light load
2 tbsp for a heavy load
1/2 tbsp for HE washers
I love the peppermint Dr. Bronner's castile soap!
Some people use Fels Naptha soap for this part, but I think that is a little harsh for my kids!
Grate it finely!!
Pieces too large will be hard for your machine to use effectively.
To get what you need, it will take about 2/3 of a bar of the soap.
I save the last bit to wash myself with!
Cheap as dirt, can be used for many things!
I keep it in an old pasta sauce jar that I can't use for canning.
Since I use an HE front loader, I use 1/2 tbsp per load.
Yep, on my jar is says tsp, but I meant tbsp.
Blame my mommy brain!
