Make Your Own Laundry Soap for Pennies Per Load and Get One Step Closer to Your Dream
Here’s my laundry soap recipe to help you be more self sufficient.
There’s a really cool project going on in Kansas City at the Urban Farming Guys. 20 families moved into the inner city and set up housekeeping with a motive to bring fresh vegetables and homesteading skills to the inner city. I absolutely love what they’re doing — check it out.
This video shows you how to make your own laundry soap. It’s the same recipe that I use. I have hard water and increase the amount of washing soda.
Here’s my Laundry Soap recipe:
10 oz. of bar soap, grated (1 use 2 bars of Goat’s milk soap — use whatever soap you want — this isn’t a beauty enhancer)
1 cup of washing soda
1 cup of borax
5 gallons of really hot water
I stop here and then store it in a 5-gallon bucket and use 2 tbsp. per wash load. You can follow the video and add another 5 gallons of water and store it in closed containers. Your laundry soap will be organic and non-toxic if you use natural soap.
Now you can take the money that you’re saving and put it toward your dream.
Thanks for the video, Urban Farming Guys.
