Prep of the Day - Make Laundry Soap

Homemade Laundry Detergent on Pinterest | 50 Pins

Here are several recipes (mostly the same recipe) to make laundry soap.

In the past I have made the liquid using 1 bar of  fels naptha, 1 1/2 cups washing soda, 1 1/2 cups borax, making 3 gallons. 1/3 cup per load. Worked great and it lasted me about 1 month per gallon doing 1 load a day.

Lately I just make powder using 1 bar of any soap (homemade from gma), 1 cup washing soda, 1 cup borax. 1 tbsp per load.  I switched because this is SOOOOO much quicker to make and I am in a busy season, with two toddlers and two in diapers.  I have to make this every two weeks, 2 loads a day.
