    Default Homemade Laundry Soap Recipes Anyone?

    With a large family washing clothes seems to happen more around my

    house than eating.



    Anyone have home made laundry soap recipes that remove stains and are

    safe for colored clothes. Smelling good wouldnt hurt either.



    Thank you in advance.

    This is the recipe I use.


    Laundry Soap

    1/2 bar of Octagon (all purpose soap,sold in with laundry soaps)
    1/2 cup 20 Mule Team Borax
    1/2 cup washing soda (I have used baking soda and it works good too)
    2 gal. hot water

    Put the 1/2 bar of soap in 1 gal. of the hot water (I shave mine so it dissolves better) let it set overnight. If needed squeeze it with your hands to get it mixed good. Then add the other gal. of hot water and the washing soda and Borax let it sit over night again. Stir before using. Use 1/2 a cup for a large load and you can use a little more if clothes are extra dirty.

    Someone has mentioned Octagon soap, then the Phels Napha <sp?> bars

    have been discussed. The only laundry bar I found after checking 3

    stores while doing my shopping this morning was Zote pink soap. Are

    all these bars basically the same thing and can be used like the

    others in the recipes?

    Bleach (heavy-duty) recipe

    1 gallon water

    2 cups chlorinated lime

    3 cups washing soda



    Mix in an old plastic bucket. Stir well. Let stand, uncovered, for 24

    hours. Strain into storage containers. Use as any commercial bleach.

    AVOID CONTACT WITH SKIN AND FUMES WHEN MIXING.

    ---------------------------

    Color-Safe Bleach recipe

    This bleach is for delicate colors and synthetic fabrics. It reduces

    yellowing in silks and woolens.



    2 cups hydrogen peroxide

    14 cups water



    Mix ingredients and store in a plastic one-gallon container. Soak

    items to be cleaned in this solution for 10 to 30 minutes.

    -------------------------

    Fabric Softener recipe

    2 cups baking soda

    2 cups white vinegar

    4 cups water



    Mix ingredients and store in a plastic or glass container in your

    laundry area. Label the container and keep it out of the reach of

    children.



    To use: Shake the mixture and add 1/4 cup to the final rinse in the

    washing machine. If you have hard water, use 1/3 cup.

    --------------------------------

    Fabric Softener recipe

    2 cups baking soda

    4 cups water

    2 cups Herbal Vinegar or white vinegar



    Mix ingredients and store in a plastic or glass container in the

    laundry area. Add 1/4 cup to the final rinse water in washing

    machine. If your water is hard, you may have to add a little more.

    -----------------------------

    Fabric Whitener recipe

    1 part cream of tartar

    3 parts water



    Use to whiten white linen or cotton.

    ----------------------

    Gentle Fabric Soap recipe

    1 cup soap flakes

    4 cups boiling water

    1/2 cup borax



    Combine soap flakes and borax in a large pan and pour the boiling

    water over the mixture, stirring until soap is dissolved. Cool, then

    store in a plastic squeeze or pump container and keep in the laundry

    area.



    To use, measure out 1/4 cup for each quart of water. Add items to be

    washed and agitate them around. The mixture should produce suds. If

    it does not, add another squirt. If your delicate items are heavily

    soiled, soak them for 1 or 2 hours in the cleaning solution before

    laundering them.

    --------------------------------

    Homemade Laundry Soap recipe



    1 bar Ivory Soap (plain, pure soap - no fragrance)

    1 cup washing soda (not baking soda)



    Fill a large bucket or container with hot tap water. Set aside.



    Grate the bar of soap into a saucepan. Add water just to cover the

    grated soap. Heat the mixture, stirring constantly, until the soap is

    dissolved. Add the soap-water mixture to the hot water in the bucket.

    Stir to combine. Then add washing soda and stir. As this cools it

    will turn into a white gelatinous soap. The thickness will vary

    depending on the size of container used.



    To use: Pour one cup into soiled laundry load.



    This bucket of soap does a lot of laundry for a very small price and

    more soap is just 15 minutes away. One batch washes 24 loads of

    laundry.

    ---------------------------

    Laundry Pre-Treat Spray recipe

    1/2 cup household ammonia

    1/2 gallon water

    2 tablespoons Soft Soap

    1/2 cup white vinegar

    1/4 cup baking soda



    Put all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray all hard-

    to-clean areas of clothing before washing.

    ----------------------------------

    Laundry Pre-Wash Spray recipe

    1/2 cup ammonia

    1/2 cup liquid laundry detergent

    Water



    Put all the ingredients into a pint spray bottle. Shake well before

    using.

    ---------------------------------

    Laundry Soap (for automatic washers) recipe

    2 cups pure soap flakes or powder

    2 to 4 tablespoons washing soda (4 tablespoons

    if using very hard water)

    --------------------------------

    Laundry Starch recipe

    1 cup cornstarch

    1/2 cup wheat starch



    Stir cornstarch and wheat starch together and cover tightly to store.



    To use, dissolve 2 teaspoons in 1 cup water. Apply to damp fabric

    with a spray bottle or dilute with more water and moisten fabrics in

    a starch bath.

    --------------------------

    I hope this helps you out.

I have always used Fels Naptha soap. There are tons of recipes out there and all tell ya different soaps you can use. Personally i would stick with the zote soap or the fels naptha soap. I love making and using homemade soap. It has really saved us money
