As I am sipping on some nice, hot coffee, I thought I would write another post. Ahhh, time goes by soo fast! :: le sigh :: 😉
This is *pretty* much like the powdered recipe, however, there are a few differences that I thought I’d share :). One batch of the liquid laundry soap is 3 gallons, costing only $9.00 total (for 18 gallons). I’ll let you do the math on that one!
cast of characters:
~ 1 cup borax
~ 1/2 cup oxi clean
~ 1/2 cup washing soda
~ 1 bar grated Fels Naptha (just grate it on the finest side of your cheese grater)
~ 3 gallons of water
~ (a 5 gallon bucket (not shown yet :)))
1) Boil 4 cups of water, turn down the heat, and add the grated Fels Naptha, a little at a time. Stir until it’s totally dissolved.
2) Now you are ready to pour it into the bucket!
First add some hot water from the faucet into the bucket. Then pour the mixture, as shown …
Add all the rest of the dry ingredients, and mix …
And then just fill ‘er up with 3 gallons of water …
3) Let this sit overnight, with a lid over it. The next morning, mix it up with your hands. It’ll look something a bit like this …
Or if this was all too confusing for you, check out this video, which explains all.
And voila! Liquid laundry soap 🙂
(p.s. that laundry softener is coming soon. I promise.)
