Here it is, since you asked. 🙂 as well as a picture of the Simply Wonderful homemade laundry soap !!! I took it to show, it is the ONLY thing I am using. No more wasteful huge plastic jugs to end up in the landfill, no more fabric softener and no more ripped open boxes of dryer sheets. None. This is it and it is Simply Wonderful!!! and makes the top of my laundry area, MUCH less “cluttered” and all who know me well, know how much I hate clutter!!!!
1 bar Fels Naptha
1/2 cup Borax
1/2 cup Arm & Hammer washing soda. (there are alot of products containing A & H, in different varieties. Be SURE you get SIMPLY the item stated) I have found it a challenge to find it, but look hard, it is worth it.
Chop up the bar of Fels Naptha into chunks and put through a food processer. You want to be it as close to a powder as you can possibly get it.
Add to the Borax and Arm & Hammer washing soda.
Stir well and keep in a covered container.
Use about 2 Tbsp per load. I just use the handy little scoop (thanks Kim) and eyeball it now.
Simple as that. I usually make about 3 or 4 batches at a time since I do SO much laundry and have the mess less often, but oh, it makes the kitchen smell WONDERFUL, fresh and clean while you are preparing it!!!! ahhhhhhh
One more note that works best for me…..I use WARM water setting and add the laundry soap straight into the running water. It does suds well if you add it this way, but not being a commercial “detergent” might not make mounds of suds, but that is fine. Trust me, it is still getting your clothes CLEAN in alot better way!!!
I would love to know how many of you are trying this, and of course, how much you LOVE it!!! let me know if you have any questions, or want to me to make some FOR you!!! I am also doing that for some of my customers. :)
