DIY Laundry Soap

Today I find myself, the last man standing in a wave of stomach flu. The piles of foul laundry are daunting but fear not, i will prevail! As I need to make some super germ fighting laundry soap I thought I would kick off a new DIY series by sharing my laundry soap recipe. It is so simple and cost effective, it is good for you and the environment. You can tailor the recipe to meet your needs. Besides, why pay for water and mystery ingredients to be shipped all over the place?

here is the recipe:

2 cups of grated soap, any handmade soap or something like fels naptha

1 cup of baking soda

1 cup of borax

1 cup of washing soda

essential oil if scent desired

mix it all together and store. Use 2 tablespoons per load of laundry.
