I have been researching about Homemade laudry soap. We are going to start making our own... 10 people=tons of laudry!!!
However, there is SO much info, I'm getting really confused.
We bought Borax tonight because I know I need that...what soap do I use? Our Walmart doesn't have Washing Soda - haven't checked Meijers yet, but did anyone decide if you can make your own?

What recipe do I use? There are billions:)

Thank you,
a confused girl!

p.s. I know it's not that hard, just have to do it ::) ;)

I use a very simple recipe.  Borax and washing soda plus I grate in soap, something like fels naptha.

The proportions are:

4 C. soap flakes (I shred it in my food processor and let it sit out for 24 hours to cure)
2 C. borax
2 C. washing soda

I use 1 T per load -- I have a front loader

If the load is extra dirty I use 1 T. ecover non-chlorine bleach cleaner which has a lot of dry hydrogen peroxide in it.

I tried posting on the original laundry thread, but I can't, so I guess I should do it here?  Anyway, has anyone tried Shaklee's new Basic-H formula as laundry soap?  I just found out that it is 1/4 cup per full load.  I may try it today, but I thought I'd ask first.                  ~L
