Making Homemade Laundry Soap Viscous and Foamy

May I ask what should I add to my homemade liquid detergent to make it viscous? And what should I add to make it form bubbles? I have used the borax/washing soda homemade recipe and it doesn't make any foam when I do my laundry.

Making Homemade Laundry Soap Viscous and Foamy

I started using the homemade laundry soap 2 years ago and love the way it cleans. On my yearly check up for my washer the service man was impressed by how clean my machine was and said it was because I didn't have bubbles in my laundry soap. He told me to keep using it and my machine will last years longer.

Love and prayers.

Yes, perhaps, but I am planning on selling my detergent and unfortunately people think that if your liquid detergent does not foam, it doesn't work. What should I do? What shall I add? And how do I make my liquid detergent thick enough? It looks like milk to me. Thanks a lot! (12/17/2005)

i just wanted to let you know that bubbles are not what clean your clothes, it's the soap itself. If you use this soap for gifts, just explain that there will be no bubbles and your clothes will be cleaner and the washer will last longer. I worked at a laundromat and the inspector told us our machines were in excellent shape. We only sell soap with no bubbles. Just thought you would like to know. (12/17/2005)

In every bubble bath recipe I found, there is glycerin and sugar.
Maybe it's the solution.
For 1/2 cup liquid soap they add 1/4 cup glycerin and 1 teaspoon sugar. (06/28/2006)
