Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/3 bar Fels Naptha soap -- grated
1/2 cup washing soda
1/2 cup borax
Felz Naptha - Put in a pan with 3 pints of water, and heat until dissolved: 1/3 bar Fels Naptha Laundry Soap, grated, Stir in: 1/2 cup Washing soda, 1/2 cup Borax. Mix until it thickens like honey.
Remove from heat. In a two gallon bucket, put 1 quart of hot water, then add the soap.
Mix. Fill bucket with cold water. Mix until well blended. Set aside for 24 hours. It will gel up. Use 1/2 cup for each load
From Amy: One more thing: when I make laundry soap with this, I get roughly 36 loads out of one bar of soap. I pay $1 for Fels Naptha, and the A&H Washing Soda is $1.87/box (about 8 c. per box, or about 23 cents/cup).
So I spend about $1.23 for 36 loads of laundry, or about 3.4 cents/load. And it takes less time to mix up a batch of laundry soap than it does to jump in the car, run to the store, and buy it. And the Fels Naptha cleans better than anything I've tried, with no allergic reactions for my kids.
