How Does She Do It? for homemade laundry soap that smelled great using Scentsy washer whiffs I was curious. I happened to be on my last scoops of laundry soap and didn't have time to order the Scentsy whiffs, but I managed to find some scent crystals and everything else minus the bucket at Walmart for $22.
So on a Friday night after a long day at work I went to work making my laundry soap. Who new making laundry soap could be so much fun and smell so good? It took me about 30 minutes to mix and most of that time was grating the Zote soap.
Recipe for the Most Amazing Homemade Laundry Soap
1 ( 4 lb 12 oz)Box of Borax
1 (3lb 7 oz) Box of Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda
1 container of Oxyclean
4 (1 lb) boxes of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda (found in cooking aisle or you can grab a big bag at Costco.)
2 (14 oz) Bars of Zote soap (laundry aisle)
2 bottles of Purex Crystals Fabric Softner
1. Grate the soap with a cheese grater
2. Mix all the ingredients in the bucket. ( I divided mine into fourths and layered it to make it easier to mix)
3. Use 2-4 Tablespoons per laundry load.
The result an orange bucket that is 3/4 of the way full of AMAZING smelling laundry soap that works wonderfully.
Because of my little ones I store the huge bucket in the garage and I bought a cute container to keep in the laundry room. I included a label that you can print and mod podge onto your own jar. To download the label click here.
