05 Jul DIY Homemade Liquid Laundry Soap
Homemade Liquid Laundry Soap
The Duggar’s Family Recipe For Front or top load machine
If you are into DIY mode like I am, you are going to love making this recipe.
1 Fels-Naptha soap bar
(ask your local bakery if they can sell you a 5 gal bucket,
I read that Icing comes in 5 gals buckets)
Slowly add melted soap,
Super Washing Soda, Oxi Clean, and Borax.
Stir well until all powder is dissolved.
half full with soap and then fill rest of way with water.
This Liquid soap recipe makes 10 gallons.
Top Load Machine- 5/8 Cup per load (Approx. 180 loads)
Front Load Machines- ¼ Cup per load (Approx. 640 loads)
This recipe for laundry soap will give you great quality laundry soap, and since it’s not filled with harsh chemicals it won’t give you any allergies. It’s Low Sudsing to No Sudsing. Remember that its the ingredients in the soap, not the suds, that does the cleaning. Works well in traditional or HE machines. I will make this laundry soap again.
I added 1 tsp of Tea Tree Oil to my Recipe (note: I use Vinegar instead of fabric softener)
Vinegar works great and NO! your clothes won’t smell like vinegar. It works out to be few cents per load which is amazing!!! I still have plenty of borax, super washing soda, oxi, & tea tree oil to make more soap.
The Fels Naptha Bar cost me .97 cents at WalMart. I don’t shop at Walmart, so I purchased 6 bars during my trip.This way I don’t have to go back there any time soon.
I get Borax for about $3.29 or so & Super Washing Soda for about $2.49
from my local Shop Rite.
The Tea Tree Oil I get for $4.99 at Trader Joe’s
Oxi for about $3
Target carries Borax & Oxi.
My Recipe cost approx. $3 per batch
Around $2 if you leave out the Oxi and Tea Tree Oil
