Making Laundry Soap = Doing Laundry
Today started like most of my days. At my laptop with my coffee looking at blogs, when lo-and behold there it was, something really new! I mean I am always looking at recipe’s but this one is for laundry soap. Yes, laundry soap!
I stopped in on a blog I love to look at http://somedaysarediamonds-karen.blogspot.com/ I mean come on just name makes ya wanna look doesn’t it? Well Some days are like diamonds and I think today is one of them.
She had posted about her new adventure in making homemade laundry soap that she found from her friends blog. At first I thought wow, good for her, good for them! But why? I continued to read and was intrigue by how EASY and CHEAP it seemed to be!
Off to the store I go. I’m going to get all this wonderful stuff and leave Martha Stewart in my dust! I hit Wal – Mart they usually have everything like this. No such luck you need to buy Arm and Hammer Washing Soda from an ACE Hardware dealer so a stop at Lowes and I was ready to try this.
3 bars Fels Naptha Bar Soap - each bar is 5 1/2 oz. OR
USE PINK ZOTE THE BEST! USE 1~1/3 bars
4 lbs. Borax
4 lbs. Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
4 lbs. Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
Mix and store in airtight container.
1 to 2 tablespoons per load.
Buy all these
Add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle to soften fabric, brighten whites and eliminate cling. No vinegar smell left on clothes!
Mmm The smell of fresh Laundry........
