  • How to make a cleaning product. Make Your Own Laundry Detergent - Step 1
    Step 1

    start be grating your bars of soap. best if you can find castile soap but any thing will do......strongly against dial!

    melt down you shavings in a sauce pan with some water...add more water if needed...a wisk really helps to break up the chunks..

    Step 3

    after soap is melted into liquid add it to the bucket while finishing filling up the bucket with hot water. mix well and your done...you can use it right away...but in the morning it should have gelled and solidified...and i use about 1-2 c. in each load depending on how dirty everything is...

    its so cheap and natural you can use how ever much you want...trial and error ...

I had this recipe years ago and lost the proportions
....so glad someone shared them.
This was the best thing for my son who has really sensitive skin. And talk about frugal (smile really big)
