Make your own liquid laundry detergent

homemade laundry detergent
One of my customers just made a big batch of laundry detergent and scented it with Breezes & Sunshine. I asked for her recipe and she was happy to share it with everyone:

LYNN’S HOMEMADE LIQUID LAUNDRY SOAP

Grate 1 bar Fels Naphtha soap
Gradually heat soap and 2 quarts water-stir until dissolved
In 5 gallon bucket, pour 4.5 gallons (72 cups/18 quarts) of hot tap water
Stir in 1 cup Borax and 1 cup washing soda until dissolved.
Add soap mixture into bucket. Add fragrance oils, stir well. Cover and leave over night.
Shake or stir until smooth, pour into gallon containers (5)
Use ½ - 1 cup per load

Thanks Diane & Lynn!
