Laundry Detergent Recipe
- 1 bar of washing soap something like Zote or what I used called Fels-Naptha
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups of Borax
- Boiling water
grate the soap with a cheese grater put into your 5 gallon bucket at some boiling water and stir.. add a little more and stir.. keep adding and stirring until the soap is dissolved add the borax a little at a time and stir until dissolved you should use about a gallon of boiling water.. now add 2-3 more calls of hot very hot water and stir. Cover the bucket and let sit 24hrs. The resulting mix should be gel like take an old detergent container fill 1/4 to 1/2 with gel and the remainder with hot water.. Shake it before each use. Easy Peasy
