Laundry Soap

You have ask for it so here it is! You may also want to check out my friend Merideths comments on her blog:

I like to mix the soap a few days before you need to use it in order to let it settle. I don't think it is any different than the Tide I was using before, just much cheaper! As far as smell it just smells really clean.I have choosen not to add the essential oils because my family can have MAJOR allergies to scents!

Here it is:

1 bar of mild soap like Ivory, 1/2 cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda, 1/2 cup Borax, 1 Tbs essential oil (to fill a 5 gallon bucket just double the recipe)

In large saucepan grate the bar of soap with a cheese grater. Add 6 cups of water. Stir over medium heat until soap dissolves. Stir in washing soda, Borax & essential oil. Mix well. Pour mixture into 5 gallon bucket. Stir in 4 cups of hot water. Stir. Then add one gallon plus 6 cups of water to mixture and stir again. Mixture will be watery. Let it sit overnight to thicken. Use 1/2 cup per load. Stir before using!

That's it easy as pie!!
