1/1 Photo of Laundry Soap Inexpensive
An inexpensive laundry soap that works well. Zote is only 99 cents for 14 oz at my Walmart so its a really cheap recipe for me. They do not sell washing soda so I bought Ph+ for pools, which is 100% sodium carbonate the same as washing soda. Baking soda is not the same.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Grate soap in food processor or use a cheese grater.
- 2Melt soap in 4 cups of water on the stove on medium heat.Do not boil.
- 3Add borax and washing soda.
- 4Stir until dissolved.
- 5Add fragrance.
- 6Pour mixture into a 3-5 gallon bucket or big anamel pot and add the rest of the water. Stir.
- 7Let it set overnight and it will gel.
- 8Pour into empty detergent bottles or store in covered bucket.
- 9Shake or stir before using. Use 1/4 cup per normal load of laundry. Use 1/2-1 cup for mens work clothes or socks.
- 10Once you have the ingredients, one box of Borax will make about 38 gallons of Laundry soap, each bar of Zote will make 14 gallons, and a 4 lb bottle of sodium carbonate makes 32 gallons. It cost me $14.72 to begin with [including 5 bars of Zote]. Because of the amount that each ingredient is sold in, I can make atleast 32 gallons of laundry soap which means 2048 loads of laundry for $14.72. Thats about 4 years worth for my family of 5 people.
