It's all about HOME...
How long have you used the homemade laundry soap? Does it get your clothes clean? I have tried for about 2 years now to make my own laundry soap. I seem to have trouble with it getting our clothes clean. Maybe we are just dirty people. Anyway another problem I have with it is that it leaves my linens non absorbent almost like they have a water repellent on them. I noticed you put water softener in yours. I think that might solve my absorbeny problem. I hope to find the lavender ivory soap here as I am very found of lavender scent. I have been using fels naptha soap in mine. Thanks for this post. I am going to try your recipe the next batch I made. Enjoy your day and God bless.
My recent comment should read I am very fond of lavender scent not found. Oh well, I should proofread better. God bless.
The home made laundry soap sounds great. I love the smell of lavender, I have English Lavender growing in my garden. lovely photos. Emily is my favorite girls name. Have a wonderful day !
LOVELY POST!!! EMILY'S DEDICATION WAS SO SPECIAL AND WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY UP WITH HER. CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE LADIES RETREAT EITHER. WILL BE A LOT OF FUN!
Ah yes, homemade laundry soap! I've been making it ever since that first time- I can't say as though I actually use a recipe I just use equal amounts of soap flakes, borax and soda. I just use any old soap I can find. Surprisingly the cheap "old man soap on a rope" had the nicest scent on my clothes!The thing I notice is that because it doesn't suds up I think that Mr. S. uses more than necessary.
I just checked my email and had not rec. anything yet. I wasn't for sure if you had my correct email or not. It is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for answering my questions. The laundry soap I have been making is a little different from yours. Mine is a liquid. I prefer using a powder. Thanks again and God bless.
I make a liquid version and use Washing Soda(sodium carbonate) not Baking Soda(Sodium Bicarbonate). Then I add a small bottle of dawn dish soap. Because I found that it wasnt taking the greasy stains out.. Added the Dawn and that did the trick Still cheap and Biodegradable/enviromentally friendly!
Thanks for posting the dedication pic.Can't wait until I can get to our next meeting.I miss all the girls so much.I've been so busy with my new little princess.Emily Ada is alot of fun and growing very fast.I already have a bag of clothes that are toooooo small.lol.
Can I use this in my HE washer?
To be honest, I do not know if you can use this homemade detergent in your HE washer...I googled it and could not find a definite answer.. I know you can mix it with hot water for front loading machine but anyone using this needs to do so at your own discretion... ok?
