    Default Laundry Detergent

    I made my own laundry detergent using the economical detergent recipe. It did not gel but separated. The water on the bottom and the soap and borax formed on the top. When I stirred it, the soap just went to chunks. Does anyone have any suggests on what I can do different to get it to turn out?

    Thanks,

    Kimberly

    Hi Kimberly,
    no suggestions, because I haven't made it yet. was at Wal Mart today to buy all the stuff but couldn't find the Fels Naptha Soap, looked in the laundry and cleaning isle and also in the personal soaps isle, no luck. looking forward to see what the suggestions are posted before I try to make it.
    good luck.

    I don't know which one she used but here is the one I was going to try. I couldn't find Fels Naptha Soap either so ordered it on line. Hasn't come yet but would sure like to know if this works right before i make it!

    Liquid Laundry Detergent Recipe #1

    3 Pints Water
    1/3 Bar Fels Naptha Soap, Grated
    1/2 Cup Washing Soda
    1/2 Cup Borax
    2 Gallon Bucket

    1 Quart Hot Water
    Cold Water

    Dissolve Fels Naptha in 3 pints of water over low heat. Add washing soda & Borax. Stir until thickened, and remove from heat. Add 1 Quart Hot Water to 2 Gallon Bucket. Add soap mixture, and mix well. Fill bucket with cold water, and mix well. Set aside for 24 hours, or until mixture thickens. Use 1/2 cup of mixture per load.
