  • 1 Quart Hot Water
  • 1/2 Cup Washing soda/Sodium Carbonate ( I find it at Publix)
  • 3 Pints Water
  • 1/3 Bar Fels Naptha Soap or any other bar Soap, Grated
  • 1/2 to 1 Cup Borax
  • Hot Water


Mix Fels Naptha Soap in a saucepan with 3 Pints water and heat on low until dissolved. Stir in washing soda and Borax. Stir until thickened (it doesn’t get real thick) and remove from heat. Add 1 quart hot water to 2 gallon bucket. Add Soap mixture and mix well. Fill bucket with hot water and mix well.

Set aside for 24 hours or until mixture thickens. Use 1/2 cup per load I love this stuff! My husband has had jeans that were so dirty I thought that i would have to throw them away. This stuff cleaned them! It doesn’t get as thick as store bought liquid Soap and it doesn’t suds in the washer, but boy does it clean well!

You can scent it by adding any hydrosol that you choose, to the strength that you want.
