Natural laundry detergent Makes 5 gallons
Shave a bar of soap I use "fels naptha" and then put in pot of 4 cups of water to melt
In a five (5) gallon bucket fill halfway (about 3 gallons) with hot water and add the melted soap and 1 cup Borax and 1/2 cup of washing soda and u want to mix all this very well then finish filling with hot water and cover and let sit 24 hrs. it will have thicken so u want to stir it again and I use my hands to break it all up.
When done you will want to fill 5(1 gallon bottles) I use empty milk jugs and when u go to use the product u want to shake good and only use 1/4 to 1/2 cup in your wash
Note: This is good for HE machines as well and this is not going to suds but suds is not what cleans your clothes in the first place.
If you want, you can add some essential oil to each 1 gallon bottle. I use 1 tablespoon of essential oil in each gallon.
Lemon Essential oil Antitumoral, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, astringent, anti-inflammatory, immune stimulant, improves concentration.
Lavender essential oil antiseptic, antifungal, antiviral, calm and allow you to sleep. Added benefit is is beneficial to eczema. So many detergents actually inflame the skin condition. It also kills scabies.
