My Home-made Laundry Soap

Ok, so this is for every one that has seen that I am now making home-made laundry soap.  I found this recipe on Pinterest.  I have added one ingredient, so we will see how it works.  My last batch that I made probably lasted me about 5-6 months.  I was normally spending around $14 every month and a half for Ecos laundry soap.  As much as I loved it, I needed to find something that lasted longer.  That is when I stumbled upon this recipe.  Now don't get too excited, it openly tells you this is not a fragrant smelling soap, even though it smells good to you, it doesn't really make your clothes smell like anything, but you know what???  It gets the job done!  That is why I added an ingredient, so we will see:)  Now for the unveiling of the ingredients :o)  I get all of these at Walmart, this is where I have found it the cheapest.

You simply mix all the ingredients up in a 5 gallon bucket and put into any container your little heart desires.  I happen to use old ice-cream containers, as seen below. It fills two of them to the top. Just make sure your container has a good sealed lid.                                                                           

You only need one scoop of the soap per load. I just use the scoop from this bucket.

Now the Purex Crystals is my new addition to this recipe.  It comes in different smellies.  The recipe on Pinterest also says you can use Fells-Napa soap, but I LOVE this Yardley soap, it smells so good I wish I could eat it.  These two smells together is Heavenly. You will need to buy a cheese grater ( I got a big hand held one at the Dollar Store for $1 ).  You just simply grate the soap, just like you would cheese. 

This my friends is the FINISHED product!!!  See how the soap grated up looks just like cheese?

                                                             Ta Daaaa!!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do....Thanks for reading :o)


  1. I like my clothes to not smell like anything so they don't clash with any perfume or lotion I want to wear. I'll have to try this!! Thanks Nicole!

  2. See, with our well water, all I want is to find something that will make my cloths smell good without spending boatloads of money that I don't have, but yeah i don't want it to clash with my perfume either, that's why I chose that that Yardley soap:) You are very welcome..I love to share :o)
