Here is another "recipe" for homemade laundry soap. It is easy to make and SUPER cost effective. Just like the powdered, you will need to buy a laundry soap bar. My local walmart has Zote. My local Food 4 less has Zote and another. My 99 cent store has 5 or 6 diferent scents. I bought another one from here and I will make a different "flavor" next time.
Grate the laundry soap. You could also throw it in your food processor.
Put 5 cups of hot water onto a pot on the stove. Add your grated soap
Melt all of the soap and keep stirring it.
Grab a bucket. I used my old Laundry bucket
Add 3 gallons of HOT tap water. I used an old milk jug to get easy measurements.
Add 1 cup washing soda and 3/4 cups borax to the hot water and stir. All of the recipes out there have had different amounts of washing soda and borax to water ratio. Find what works for your and your loads!
Mix in the melted laundry bar and water from the stove. I added maye 3 or 4 cups of water afterwards and I had a full bucket. Let sit overnight. It will be goopy, kind of thick:
