    I tried this recipe last week and it did not thicken and gel. Any ideas on what I did wrong? I really want to make my own liquid detergent. I made a powder version this week and I don't like it as much. Thanks.

    It might be that you did not heat the bar soap up enough to melt it thoroughly so that the ingredients would incorporate. The texture of your finished product should be like heavy egg drop soup.

    Where can you buy the Purex laundry softener crystals?I live in Canada and don't recall seeing it here.I know I can't get Fels Naptha because I have made my own laundry soap before and used another bar soap and it was quite successful.This one sounds like I would be able to use it in my HE machine because it's low sudsing.

Size:  13.4 KBFels Naptha is available on Amazon with Free Shipping (if you're a Prime member) for $4.35 a bar- Still dirt cheap compared to Laundry soap prices. Walmart also has fels naptha near the clothing dyes in the cleaning section.

    Ok. I know I wasn't suppose to bring it to a boil but I may not have let it heat up enough. I will try it again and see what happens. Thanks for the info. I still used the top layer of it, but it never mixed throughly with the two gallons of water so I tossed the rest of it and tried the powder, which was good but did not seem to last very long.

    just made the detergent, does the fels naptha smell like gojo hand cleaner to anyone else? and how much does it thicken up in the 24 hrs because its not that thick ruight now, very thin in fact. though i dont see its thickness making a whole lot of difference in how it cleans

    It does to me too Mechelle, that's why I use the purex crystals. It's usually pretty thin the first 2 hours and then becomes rather thick within 4 hours and like a really thick egg drop soup overnight.
