I’ve been thinking about trying to make my own laundry soap. Different recipes for it are all over Pinterest. It just kept nagging me and nagging me until I finally decided to just do it. I decided to make it using Liz Marie’s recipe.
She doesn’t have added scents in her recipe, but I wanted them. You can find a few different scent bead packages on the laundry isle. I love the clean linen scent, so that’s what I picked. Also, instead of grating the Fels-Naptha soap, I pulsed it in a mini-coffee grinder. It worked perfectly.
Oh, and a cooler works perfectly for stirring the mixture. Ha.
The total cost for the laundry soap was $27.88. The glass jar was $10 extra. I’ll let you know how I like it and how many loads I get out of it once I’m a few months’ in.

Cool! IT never even crossed my mind to make my own laundry soap! I’m lazy when it comes to stuff like that 😉 Haha
I do not use the Oxy. Don’t care for it. Been using this mix for over a year w/o the Oxy and love it! Just purchased Zone to try it for a change
I have a daughter who is sensitive to soaps perfect and this works fine for her
Just make sure you put this in your machine, he or not, first
I also use my food processor to grate
That makes sense. I really like using Oxy in mine but my little guy gets really dirty. I put mine in the food processor as well.. that’s the only way to go!!
