Laundry Detergent

Post by Medicine Mom on Fri May 08, 2009 1:29 pm

This is the best laundry detergent I have ever used and it costs approx. $8 for 1000 loads!

1 quart Water (boiling)
2 cups Bar soap (grated)
2 cups Borax
2 cups Washing Soda
Add finely grated bar soap to the boiling water and stir until soap is melted. You can keep on low heat
until soap is melted.
Pour the soap water into a large, clean pail and add the Borax and Washing Soda. Stir well until all is
dissolved.
Add 2 gallons of water, stir until well mixed.
Cover pail and use 1/4 cup for each load of laundry. Stir the soap each time you use it (will gel).

What kind of bar soap do you use.. would that be Fels Naptha, or just any ordinary bar...

last fall I started saving slivers of bar soap.. would they work?

sounds like a great idea!

You can use any bar soap you like. I bought Zote at $0.80/bar from BigLot. Fels Napa is a little more expensive, but is good if you like it. You can also use Ivory or any other bar soap you like.

What is washing soda? I want to make my own as my kids keep the washing machine busy. Weill this work in the old timey wringer washers. I was lucky to have onne in an out building when i bought the place. Hubby replaced the cord and it works. Wringers and all. We washed a load of towels in it.

I don't know how it will work in a wringer washer. Washing Soda is (usually) made by Arm & Hammer and can be purchased at most larger grocery stores. If your store carries Arm & Hammer detergent, but doesn't have the Washing Soda, ask the manager to order it for you.
