Why yes, I do make my own laundry soap...

I make the powdered version and have using it for quite a while. I haven't had any issues with things getting clean and my laundry smells really nice. It's also much softer than when I use commercial soaps.

2 cups Fels Naptha Soap( grated fine)
1 cup Washing Soda
1 cup Borax

optional - 1 cup of oxyclean powder.

If you can't find the ingredients (or don't have a food processor to grate the soap like me) you can by them at Soaps Gone Buy

  • Mix and store in an airtight plastic container.
  • Use 1 to 2 tablespoons per load.
I hear Zote bar soap works really well, smells divine and in a pinch you can use it as catfish bait (and no, I'm not kidding) but I've yet to find it anywhere.
