Liquid Detergent

  • 1 quart water (boiling)
  • 2 cups bar soap (grated)
  • 2 cups borax
  • 2 cups washing soda
  1. Add finely grated bar soap to the boiling water and stir until soap is melted. You can keep on low heat until soap is melted.
  2. Pour the soap water into a large, clean pail and add the borax and washing soda. Stir well until all is dissolved.
  3. Add 2 gallons of water, stir until well mixed.
  4. Cover pail and use 1/4 cup for each load of laundry. Once it’s cool, add 5 – 7 drops of your favorite essential oil per gallon. Stir the soap each time you use it (it will gel).
