another way we are getting fooled is Ice cream.  The Ice cream is the same price but it is now sold as 1.5 quarts instead of a half gallon!

The powder version I would say is VERY easy, the liquid version takes a little more doing.....tell you what...I'll post both...   The Liquid version will do about 80 loads.   You need:   1 bar o

Oh boy, I had the ULTIMATE test of the home brew.  I ran out.  During the winter storm, when even with four wheel drive, I was not leaving my house!  And when I went to make another batch, and found I

I made up a batch of homemade up and had alittle bit of boughten detergent left so I mixed them together.  I noticed I have to shake it up because it gets watery.  Does anyone else have to shake it up before using it?  But other than that, seems to clean them as well as the boughten stuff.

Yes mine is very thick also.  I just left it in the bucket and have a measuring cup hang on the side.

I used one of the little 2 tablespoon medicine cups that come from cold medicines as my scoop. (For the dry detergent.) It works really well.

That's a good idea.  Thanks.

I have been using it for about 4 days now and I am very pleased with it so far.  I have noticed that my sons work clothes have always had a certain smell, ( I call it the smell of swamp water) and I have never been able to get the smell quite completely out, but since using this homemade soap, I have not noticed it.  I just did  some of the clothes he wore last night and they smell just like clothes, not swampy!!!

I went and bought all the ingredients and made the powder yesterday.  I am going to try it today.  I had put one of the medicine cups in it, too.

 

BTW, Riverside in Reynoldsville has all 3 ingredients.  The powders are in the laundry aisle and the soap is actually with the regular soaps in that store.

Thats where I got everything too.  I'll have to leave the lid off from the liquid bottle to see if it gets thick again?  Its not as thick as it was when I first made it but it still cleans.

I'm glad everyone is liking the stuff.....the smell is really so fresh, and I do like how it makes clothes smell like the dried outside, even after they come out of the drier!

 

Tomorrow is my day to make up a batch or two of powder, I usually make double batches and full a big old plastic tub with the powder.

 

The little goes a long way really works with this stuff!

Kittymommy,

 

If I make enough batches as I have ingredients will it keep (powdered version)?  I bought like 5 bars of Fels and just figured I would make the entire batch.  That way I will have it.

 

Still have one more batch of peaches to do and then the peppers, so may get around to making it on the weekend.

It should, I make three batches at a time, and it keeps just fine.  Just use a nice plastic container with a good lid.  Just so it stays nice and dry.

I haven`t made my homemade washing detergent yet.  I have made it in the past, and it works great.  My daughter mrsc made some last week with Zote. She said it jelled real good, and smells good.  I bought Zote also, and may use it this time.  I googled it, and it can be used for laundry soap, dishes, scrubbing floors, and even as a bathing soap.  It was mistakenly sent to Dollar General next to KMart.  Zote is used in Mexico.  I usually use Fels soap.  Your clothes will have a fresh smell after using the homemade detergent.

I just got done making my first five batches and now I can't wait to use it.  We still have some regular detergent left and I want to use that up before starting the homemade stuff.  It was so easy to make.

 

Since it it is so easy and so cheap I will probably be using it as my Christmas gifts for work this year.  I have about 25 people that I try to make something little for and I think this would be the perfect thing.  Who knows, I might be able to get a little business on the side from it.

 

I have the stuff for the window and bathroom cleaner but need to get another spray bottle for it.  My neighbor gave me a recipe for dishwashing soap so I am also going to try that.

I found every ingredient for the laundry soap at Martino's in Brockway.  They had em all.

Now THAT is a surprise!!! :shok:

 

I'm anxious to try this recipe out, but have to use up my stock of various detergents...down to 4 containers! :roll:...maybe by the time school starts.

has anyone had an allergic reaction to any of their home-made laundry soap?  I am allergic to alot of soap powders and wonder if this is better.  I know I can't use ivory because, yes, I am allergic to it.

I have to watch what I use but I've had no trouble so far.  I've used it several days now.
