Someone posted this on TF awhile back. I saved it for a friend, and adapted it to her reduced lifting ability and means.

Homemade Laundry Soap

Ingredients, Full Batch

2 gallons Water (hot)

1 bar Soap (grated)

2 cups Baking soda (yes baking soda not washing soda)

Ingredients, Half Batch

1 gallon water hot

½ bar soap grated

1 cup baking soda

Ingredients, Quarter Batch

½ gallon water hot

¼ bar soap grated

½ cup baking soda


* Melt grated soap in a saucepan with enough hot water to cover. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring frequently until soap is melted.

* In a large pail, pour hot water. Add melted soap, stir well.

* Then add the baking soda, stir well again.

* Use half cup per full load, 1 cup per very soiled load

Note: add ¼ to ½ cup hydrogen peroxide per load for extra whiteness.

Hope this helps. JustPlainJo
