So when I found a pin to homemade laundry soap, I skedaddled to my nearest grocer to snatch up the fixin's. I ended up having to go to two different places, as Fareway didn't carry the Fels Naptha, but it was a small price to pay for the prize of under $2 for 40 loads. Yep, you read that right.
This was another project that took under 15 minutes, looks pretty when complete, and BONUS! - makes my kitchen smell like lemons and clean. Two of my favorite smells next to right-outta-the-bath baby and mojitos.
This process was insanely easy. Grate the Fels Naptha, mix together with a cup of Borax and a cup of Washing Soda (not to be confused with Baking Soda). I doubled the batch and got this beauty.
She's so pretty, she found herself a spot on my kitchen counter. I have used this for almost a week now, and our laundry has been fresh smelling, clean, and fluffy - with only a teaspoon of detergent used. I would consider that a total win.
