Make your own Laundry Soap

This is so easy and so cheap to make, especially if you use your own homemade soap and make your own washing soda.

I am out of home made soap ( on my to do list with so many other things lol)
So I used fals nepta I just made a small batch because I like to use my home made soap so hopefully this will last until I can get some made.


Grate the soap you will need 1 cup grated soap.


1 cup Baking Soda
1 cup washing soda you can go Here to see how to make your own
1 cup Borax


These two things are optional
1/3 cup Purex crystals this makes it smell so good, I don’t use this all the time but I figure that I am saving n the washing soda so I can use a little of this, plus you don’t use a whole lot per batch.


1 cup of oxy clean I use the dollar store one or the store brand. I like to use this in the summer when our clothes get so dirty.


Put all this in to a food processor if you do not have a food processor just put into a large bowl.

Mix all together, then pour into a container use 2 to 3 Tablespoons per load.
I have a front load washer ( which I do not like ) so I add the soap to the drum after I put in the clothes
When I make soap I make a batch plain lye soap that I use for laundry soap.
You can double or triple this to make a larger batch.


  1. Hi Connie, I loved the cracker post, really looks yummy. I have never made soap as of yet, but I did but all the ingredients to make it. Well at least it's a start.
    Bought a bunch of cans of tuna this week. Also working on recipes for certain things in my folder.

  2. I love homemade laundry soap. I also have a front load washer,Don't like it either.

  3. Just wondering, do you mean 1/3 cup of the Purex crystals or 1/3 of a bottle of Purex crystals?

  4. Roxy,
    The crackers are so good.
    Once you make your own soap you will never want to buy store bought again so cheap and asy to make plus you know what is in it.

    I am so glad I am not the only one who does not like my front load seems like everyone I talk to loves theres. I don't think they clean as well plus you can't soak things oh well maybe some day I can sell it and buy a good old top load lol

    Thanks for pointing out I didn't have a cup on that. I will go back and fix that. It is a 1/3 cup

    Hope you all have a great week
