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

      Good Morning,
      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.

      I
      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
      as follows:
      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?
      Thanks, Kathy
