2 gal. hot water
1 bar of soap, grated
2 c. baking soda (not washing soda)
This recipe just calls for a bar of soap, basically the same soap that you use in the shower. I’ve read that Fels-Naptha is great for stain fighting, but this works.
- Grate the soap.
- Put the grated soap in a saucepan, cover with water and cook on low until the soap melts. Be patient, it takes a while.
- Now add 2 gallons of hot water into large bucket. Add the dissolved, melted soap and stir well.
- Add the baking soda and stir again.
- Use a half a cup on regular loads and a full cup on heavily soiled loads. That’s it! After sitting your soap will be lumpy and gloppy, that’s normal, just stir well before use.
