Homemade Laundry Soap
Make sure to grate the soap into a fine powder. I use the grater attachment on my food processor to grate the soap and then the sharp blade to mix the Borax and washing soda with the soap into a fine powder
  • 1 bar of soap - Ivory, Fels Naptha, or Kirks Castile are good starting points
  • 1 cup of washing soda (not baking soda)
  • 1 cup of Borax
  1. Fine grate the soap. I use my food processor's grate attachment.
  2. Combine all the ingredients. I combine in my food processor with the sharp blade and pulse until the soap is a fine powder.
  3. Wash your food processor!
  4. This recipe can be multiplied. Four bars of soap and four cups of washing soda and Borax will last our family of six about 6 weeks.
  5. Store in containers. I used 1 T to a large load of laundry. 2 T for extra dirty laundry.
