    Great soap recipe

    Budget101.com - - Mom's Super Laundry Sauce | Whipped Laundry Soap | Make your own Laundry Detergent

    Excellent soap recipe.

    Makes enough for 128 loads of wash at $2.00. That's about a $16 savings.

    we've been making our laundry soap for about a year now. it's the only really easy one; that we've found.
    dish soap, shampoo, anything else is pretty hard, but laundry soap is SO EASY to make. our first batch was lumpy, the second was fine, and now we greatly prefer ours.

    Interesting.

    Just an FYI.

    Did you know that there is no NAPTHA in Fels Naptha Soap anymore?

    They kept the name but, had to get rid of the Naptha.

    Well 5 gallons of laundry soap in 15 minutes doesn't sound like much work to me.

    When I was a kid growing up my Mom used Tide laundry soap in the kitchen washing dishes.

    Funny the topic of soap should pop-up. I was just thinking about learning/trying to make my own soap the other day. My Grandmother used to make lye soap when I was little. She used it in the laundry as I recall but I was young and had most things done for me (except cutting the grass and tilling the garden). As I recall it looked something like this: Let's make some soap! A recipe for a simple lye soap.

    Nope. The other easy one is soft soap (for hands or whatever). I just save up the shards of bar soap from the bath (you know, the ones that are little slivers and hard to hold). I break them up in a jar and when its full, I add enough boiling hot water to cover. Wait a few days and you got soft soap for the sink. You don't need boiling water but it makes it go faster.

    Forgot you can continually add used bars and water to it to top it off. The hand pumps draw from the bottom, not the top so you can add water to the top, and the extra bars.

    seen fight club? i'm scared of making my own lye soap because some of the by-products from said manufacture may interest the BATFE. being i am already a gun nut that will openly post on forums like this, and i have NFA items, i am not even getting within shouting distance of making anything like that....

    Felsnaptha use to be the go to soap for poison oak. you could wash your clothes in it and not spread the oil to every one in the house. I haven't tried it in say 15 years. I wonder if the naptha was what cut the poison oak oil?

    One of the jobs as a kid was shaving the felsnaptha for the washing machine. I hated that wringer it scared me my cousin got his hand caught and it pulled a lot of hide off.

    I will try this recipe for laundry thanks.
