How To Make Laundry Soap

My Sister in Law, Kristin, told us about how she has been making her own laundry detergent and saving a lot of money.  So we thought we would give it a try!  Here is where we learned how to make it.

Things you will need
2 empty milk jugs
1 bar of soap 
a grater
1 cup of Borax
1 cup of washing soda
a stockpot 
a funnel

How to make the laundry detergent.
  First grate a bar of soap.

Then put the grated soap into a stockpot, add a gallon of water,  and stir it until the soap dissolves.

Then add a cup of washing soda and a cup of borax and bring it to a boil.

Then add a gallon of cold water.

Then pour the mixture back into the milk jugs using a funnel.

Now we have ourselves some homemade laundry soap! 
approx 576 loads for under 10 bucks
