DIY: Home made Laundry Soap

I have been wanting to make my own laundry soap for a long time! I have found several recipes but I finally found one that I really wanted to try out!

I love Love, Pomegranate House and last year she shared how she made her laundry soap and I’ve finally made it. I had an opportunity where I received a free box of Borax and I knew immediately what I was going to make with it!

And can I just tell you how easy it is to make, and how delicious this soap smells? And you hardly use any! 
You want to make your own now, right? Here’s how:

1 c. Borax
1 c. Washing Soda
1 bar of Laundry Soap, grated
1/4 c. scented laundry crystals

Grate your soap bar {this will not hurt your grater}

Then mix all ingredients and you are done!

Give your soap a little shake before using and use just 1 TABLESPOON per load!

Talitha says this will make enough for 32-64 loads of laundry depending on how much you use. I’ve done quite a few loads and so far so good! Also the 1 box of Borax and the 1 box of Washing Soda will get you about 8 batches of this laundry soap!

**This container I have my soap in is HUGE. I bought it before I made my soap thinking it would fill it a lot further than it did. And this is actually about 1 1/2 batches. But I think I am just going to make more to add to it and then I won’t have to make more for a long time. I figured that with one box of Borax, one box of washing soap, 1 container of crystals 5 Fels-Naptha bars (or 2 Zote bars- because they are 3 times the size of the fels-naptha) will make our laundry soap for a year. I’m keeping track because I want to see if it really does!**
