Home Made Laundry Soap

Who Knew?
Home made Laundry Soap...

You can make your own laundry soap for a fraction of the price of store bought soap, plus it's gentler on sensitive skin like mine.. It's easy peasy to make and lasts a very long time!
All you need is a bar of Fels-Naptha Soap, Arm & Hammer Washing Soda, a box of Borax, a food grater, a large jar or other container and a scoop..
Take the bar of Fels-Napha Soap and grate the whole bar using the food grater.. You can also use a food processor for this, but it does end up sticking to the blade quite a bit.. I find it's faster and easier to just use a food grater... 
I buy my Fels-Napha Soap at Wally World... It costs about $1.79.

Add the grated soap to your glass container, or whatever you decide to use to hold your laundry soap. I bought this glass jar with lid at WalMart for about $5.

Add 4 cups of Washing Soda and 4 cups of Borax, also purchased at WalMart. 

Pour them into the container and start shaking the container. After I shake it up for a bit, I use my hand to make sure it's really mixed up.. 

I use a plastic scoop taken from a protein drink mix.. One scoop is just the right size for a normal wash load. 
I wash most of our clothes in cold water and never have a problem getting this soap to dissolve.. 

It has a fresh, clean scent... I love the smell and so does my husband.. 
It leaves our clothes clean, fresh and bright.. 

I have sensitive skin and have been buying unscented laundry soap with no perfumes or dyes added for years.. This laundry soap does not bother my skin! 

One jar lasts my husband and I about 3 months.. That's a bargain!!
