    Old time soap that they cleaned with and did laundry with. No amount given so I am guessing . The directions is the exact way recipe reads.

      I am going to ask my mom who grew up in the 30's if this recipe is close to what her family made. If so I am going to make a huge batch of it. My Dad always had us wash insect bites and stings with it. He also had us bathe with it after exposure to poison ivy/oak. It worked we wouldn't get as bad of a rash,and the sooner we bathed with it the less rash we had. I am giving 3 stars for now and if it is what I am hoping then I will change it to 5 stars.
