Homemade Liquid Laundry Soap
I just made my first batch and thought I’d share as Marjory & Jim suggested. Found the recipe online at prepsteaders.com. It’s good for use in all washing machines including front loaders and for prepper hand washers. Makes 5 gallons of concentrate (or 10 gallons total after adding water to concentrate); this adds up to about $1 per gallon. Save an old container, and give it a try.
Ingredients (all available at Walmart):
1 box Zote flakes
1 cup Borax
1 cup Super Washing Soda
A few drops Lavender/Eucalyptus oil (optional)
Pour whole box of Zote flakes into 5 gallon bucket. Add 1 gallon hot, nearly boiling, water and stir. Add the borax and washing soda. Stir. Add 2 more gallons of hot water from faucet. Stir. Finally, fill to top with hot water. Stir and let dissolve overnight. Fill a clean bottle half full of stirred solution and half full of water. Shake well before each use. May add a few drips of essential oil to each bottle as prepped.
