DIY: Homemade Laundry Soap

Did you see my recent blog post? It shows all of the really cool ideas I have gotten from Pinterest and how they have turned out… it  HERE!

Here is another Pinterest inspired idea I have tried…..first I got the recipe for the laundry soap HERE…..and then I got the idea of storing it from here….

this is so fun!!

Making the laundry soap was super easy, first I grated a bar of all natural soap and melted it in 4 cups of boiling water.  Next, I placed 4 gallons of water into a 5 gallon bucket and added in 1 cup washing soda and 1/2 cup of Borax.  Then I added in the melted soapy water and mixed everything together!  This process was fairly quick and the laundry soap gelled very quickly.  Next I needed a container to store it in!

I had an old water jug that we weren’t using for water anymore so I attached a little hook to the side and hung an old 1/3 measuring cup on it.  I also wrote out the recipe on card stock and attached it to the side.

Lastly, I poured in the laundry soap!

When I do a load of laundry I just take the little cup and place it under the spout and measure out 1/3 cup and add into my load of laundry!
