110. laundry soap.

We are also running low on laundry soap this week as well so i finally got around to making some of my own. My mother in law makes her own and she gave me some a while back and it worked nicely.  Its also SO much cheaper than buying store bought kind!

This was fairly easy and makes alot. Here’s what you need/do:
1/3 bar of Fels Naptha soap
1/2 cup Borax powder
1/2 cup Arm and Hammer Washing Soda
Water
a bucket to mix/store

Grate or dice 1/3 of the fels naptha soap and put it into a large sauce pan. Add 6 cups of water and heat until soap melts. Add the washing soda and borax, stir until it has dissolved.
Pour four cups of tap water into your bucket, add your soap mixture and stir together. Add another 2o cups of water and stir to combine.

Let the soap cool and set up for about 12-24 hours. The consistency should be somewhat jello-ish and somewhat liquid.

Add a 1/2 cup to each load.
