January 21, 2012: Homemade Laundry Detergent

We made our own laundry detergent this weekend. We started with the ingredients above: One third of a bar of Fels Naptha, a little of a handmade bar of soap, half cup of Borax and a half cup of washing soda. We followed this recipe.
First we chopped up the soap and melted it in some water.
Once the soap was melted, we added the Borax and washing soda. When they dissolved, we poured the mixture into a bucket and added more water. Then it has to sit overnight before being used.
