Hard Water Fabric Gel Soap

  • 2 cups pure soap flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups Borax
  • 6 cups warm water
  • 1/2 cup glycerin
  • 2 teaspoons essential oil - lavender, lemon or eucalyptus


In medium pan, stir soap flakes, borax and water. Heat slowly, stir until mix is clear. Add glycerin, set aside to cool. When cool, add essential oil; stir well. Pour in Mason jar or other container; cover until needed.

To use, add 1 cup gel soap per load of clothes, making sure soap is dissolved well before adding clothes to water. This gel works best with warm water.. Otherwise, dissolve it in a quart of warm water before adding it to the wash.
