And, No, I am not talking about what your mama put in your mouth when you sassed her back.
Was I the only one?
I bet I was not the only one.
So, anyways, I love homemade laundry soap,
even though I have not made it in 8 or 9 years.
It was a fun process, and very easy.
Of course, I did not have to grate the soap by hand, Amen
Do I hear an Amen?
I used my Bosch grater:)
I threw the grated soap into 4 cups of hot water that I had boiling on the stove.
I stirred, and stirred…..
Until it was all melted.
I then threw in a cup of Washing Soda, as well as a 1/2 of Borox.
I waited till it was disolved.
I had a 5 gallon bucket just laying around.
So, I dumped it into there, stirred it some more.
Popped the thing into the sink to fill it all the way to the top.
I called the husband to come over into the kitchen.
He used his strong muscles and lifted the bucket of soap and brought into the laundry-slash-mudroom.
It had to sit for another 24 hours.
My poor mountain of laundry sat all day.
Till I stirred it again, and popped 3 gallons of the stuff into waiting containers such as old laundry bottles and an old gallon vinegar bottle.
I filled the bottles up half way, and put water into the rest.
So, out of the 5 gallons of soap I made,
I will end up with 10 gallons.
All for around 7 or 8 dollars start up cost. I still have about 6 more loads left in both the washing soda and borax if I did my corrections right. I just need more soap, and in reality. I have some awesome homemade soap here, so I really do not need to purchase anything else.
So, there ya have it.
Yummy homemade soap,
and not a mouth was used:)
