- Fels Naptha Soap
- Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
To make my soap I use 1 bar Fels Naptha Soap, 1/2 cup Borax and 1/2 cup Washing Soda. The Borax and Washing Soda can just be measured in a dry measuring cup. The bar of Fels Naptha must be ground up. Personally, I use my food processor shaving blade. I know others who put the bar in a bag and smash it up with a hammer before putting it in the food processor with the S blade. You can do which ever appeals to you. This soap is rather hard and it is found in the laundry aisle not with regular bar soap.
To use the soap I put all the ingredients in a small square airtight container and shake. I then toss in an extra 1 Tablespoon measuring spoon. To wash clothes I use 1 Tablespoon of soap per load.This soap will not suds up like commercial laundry soaps. After a few times of washing your clothes with this soap you will notice your clothes start looking cleaner. The commercial soaps tend to leave a residue on your clothes and this will start to disappear. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does.
