I’ve been making laundry soap for a while now, and I really like the recipe. I’d like to share it with you! Let me know in the comments how it goes. 😉
You will need
- 14.1 oz Zote Bar
- 1 cup Borax (optional: this will make the soup a lot stronger and could harm fragile materials)
- 5 gallon bucket (or larger) and lid
- A stirrer (a paint stirrer will work)
- 5 gallons hot (really hot) water
- A funnel
- Containers/jugs to store the soap in
I have the computer there because I was listening to an audio. 😉
After 24 hours it was slimy, but still liquidity, so I left it over night. (Note: in hot weather, it tends to be more liquidity anyways. During the cold months it will be very jello-like. You will have to slice it.) After I let it sit for about another twelve hours, it was more solid. If it’s really solid, then you may have to continually slice it with a spatula or something of the like. This time around, it wasn’t very solid. I just stired it up with my hand.
Pour in the soap! You can use a scooping spoon, a measuring cup, or whatever you want to use to pour in the soap. Don’t forget to let it drip before you pour it in, or else it may make a mess. Also, don’t fill it up all the way, leave about three inches on top to shake the jug.
When you do your laundry, just use one cup of soap. Depending on whether your batch of soap is more liquidity or solid, it may or may not work in your washer’s detergent compartment. If it’s more liquidity, it will not hold and will fall right through (which is perfectly fine, by the way) and if it’s more solid then it will hold until the washer lets it go. I personally don’t use the detergent compartment, I just pour the cup of soap directly on my clothes.
Don’t forget to share some soap with your friends. 😉
Let me know if you have any questions! God bless!
