      Do you use this instead of regular laundry soap (I make my own with many of the same ingredients)? Or is it an extra kick for those nasty loads? I have boys who seem to make some interesting laundry adventures!

      I'm with Heather, is this instead of Laundry Sauce or in addition to Laundry Sauce? My kids do a lot of the laundry at my house and the easier, the better! I made the Duggar recipe, I thought it was fine except for the 5 gallon bucket, my family really didnt like the mixing and measuring. I am making Lavendar Laundry Sauce today!

      Awesome. I can't wait to make and use them either. Up here in Alaska this time of year we really don't get that dirty but summer is on the way. On a side note I love the laundry sauce, very easy to make and works great...

      I need some clarification please: In the "You'll Need section you call for a 1/2 of Fels Bar, but in the directions it say finely grate the entire bar and melt down. Which one is it?

      I used just a half and I also put in a 1 TBLS of Purex Crystals and it did not turn into a thick creamy consistency in the pan, but seems to be thickening as it cools. Not quite down with process yet, will get back and let you know my results.

      thank you

      Made my fourth batch today. I never plan to use any other soap. It's not like no matter how much you pay for it, anyone is ever going to say,"Wow, you have the cutest laundry detergent."

      After whipping up please help with the step of using the melon baller. Mine is like trying to use a melon baller on coolwhip....I'm sure there's a technique for this.
      Thanks!

      would I be able to add some essential oil to this for scent or would the oils make the mixture too thin and/or stain the clothing?

      Since this is the same ingredients as Super Laundry Sauce but with less water, how is it stronger/better? Couldn't you just use more SLS?

      This is more concentrated than the laundry sauce so you're only using 2 tsp of this instead of a Tablespoon. The laundry sauce is great, this is just for those that prefer "Pod" style Laundry Soap.

      These sound great! We like to use the pods so, I think this will work well and save a lot of money.

      I hate grating so I put the fels naptha in an old sock, wrapper and all, then set it on concrete and pounded it with a hammer into an even flat layer. Don't over pound or the wrapper will be in a lot of little pieces. I then crumbled the fels naptha into my kettle. It took about 20 minutes to melt.

      Hi Liss, I just have a couple questions. In the instructions for this recipe and the regular sauce it states to either use one pod or a tablespoon. I have one of those extra large machines that does not have an agitator in the middle. Would those amounts still apply or should I increase it to 1.5 or 2 tablespoons?
      Also, I seen your Zote-Fels test. I was wondering have you done a Castile soap test? Like a Kirk's or Dr Bronners? If you have, how well do they work?
      Thanks!

      Try it first with a single pod or tablespoon and if you need more, increase as needed. We have an oversized machine too and the only time we double up or add more is with ds Overly greasy work clothes.

      I am wondering if it would be ok to make a double batch of this at once or is it best to do it in single batches?

      Do these get hard or stay kind of mushy. I have made 2 batches and they harden on the outside but are soft in the middle. Am I doing something wrong?
