Need more input about the home made laundry soap. iceemama gave it a good shot and I will keep in mind what she said when mixing with the water for washing…..but….if you’re a laundry soap maker and have some time would you consider answering a question about same????
I have never made it since it would be impractical for the small amount of laundry I generate. However, I see these questions often enough that I became curious and did some research. It seems good old Borax is what should be used in the liquid (gel) and washing soda is used in the powder version. —– Now, as I said, I have no first hand experience, but I can’t see why you couldn’t either do it with your mixer or, just add the Borax to each load. I hope this helps.
I now know we did use the wrong stuff. I bought Arm & Hammer laundry detergent not washing soda. I can not get washing soda here in my (apparently podunk) small town. I have learned how to make it out of regular baking soda and wonder if I heat up some of the now gelled liquid laundry soap from this recipe and mix well with the rest (I have a grout mixer for my drill) would it work or does it really need it. We have soft water. It’s jelled up nicely and I still have to do the second mix so I was wondering if I could add it now.Thanks in Advance for any help. I will be checking in all morning till I make the grocery run.
