Weekend Makings- Laundry Soap

Last weekend I made Plum Jam and this weekend I am made a huge batch of Laundry Soap (detergent). It smells good. I hope to save some money using this. I use to make it years ago and thought I'd do it again.

This is just the container I store it in for daily use. The whole batch actually is in a small rubbermaid container. They say the batch can last a year but when I used it before it was more like 6 months.

Do you make your own laundry soap?

Blessings!

  1. I've never tried to make detergent, but have often thought of trying. I'm sure it will save money. You have been busy for the last few weeks. Maybe you can share the directions . Have a good weekend with your family!

  2. Hi Chrissy! Thank you for visiting my blog recently. It's always nice to meet new readers. I used to make it a long time ago but I couldn't figure out how to prevent dingyness so I stopped. I would like to try it again sometime.

    1. You know with one batch I experienced dingy clothes too. But Inadded oxiclean and it helped with the next batch. Thanks for visiting.

  3. I used to make that! It was fun. My fiancĂ©, being a chemist in the past, will disagree with the “recipes” found online and insist on this and that. He does it with cooking too, puts me to shame. So I just let him cook, and I do dishes.

    1. I got ya. Borax can be controversial. A lot choose to leave out but then clothes don't clean as well. Hope your well.

  4. I've been making the powdered version for years. I love it! Sometimes I will add oxyclean or something similar. I usually make a triple batch and store it in a five gallon bucket and then scoop it as needed into my daily container.

  5. How fun! I made laundry soap for years. I prefer to make the powdered version because it's easier, but I made the liquid kind once too. I like to add oxygen bleach too.

    I'm not making it right now because I'm in a busy/lazy stage but I hope to get back to it soon! I still have all the ingredients.

  6. I used to make my own laundry soap and loved it. Recently I found a fantastic deal at the Dollar Tree on both Fab and Ajax laundry detergent so I stocked up on those. It made my life a bit easier at the moment and that is something that I have been needing to do. ;)
