If you have a water softener, would you use less? Does this make a high suds? Is
it safe to water trees with?

I made this recipe yesterday but I used Zote Soap instead. It gelled
very nicely. My DH ask would it get his clothes clean and fresh.
told him I think so and he :0( at me. I told him if he was not
satisfied I would wash his clothes in store bought soap. not
does anyone have any suggestions on how to handle dh?
i found all ingredients at krogers in nacogdoches.
the prices were
zote soap $.69 makes 3 batches of laundry soap
Washing Soda $1.65 makes 12 batcges of laundry soap
Borax $2.99 makes 19 batches of laundry soap
I washing my first load of towels in the detergent know. I will let
ya’ll know what DH says.
Thank you for this great & informative group.

So I did this recipe below and the liquid is not thick. Does that
matter, I made sure to follow precisely too.
Can I still use it?

1/3 Bar Fels Naptha Soap, Grated
1/2 Cup Washing Soda
1/2 Cup Borax
2 Gallon Bucket
1 Quart Hot Water
Mix Fels Naptha soap in a saucepan with 3 pints of water, and heat
on low until dissolved. Stir in Washing Soda and 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.
