What Doin'

Today I made laundry soap. I found the recipe here and if I remember correctly this stuff works out costing around 3 cents per wash load. Plus it doesn't contain any extra chemicals, perfumes, or dyes. It consists of washing soda, borax, soap, and water.

First you cut off shavings from the soap.

Then melt them into some water.

Then add this soapy water to more water, washing soda, and borax. The solution starts out watery.

But after it begins to cool, it sets up into a gooey, chunky, gel.

Haven't done a load of laundry with it yet, so we will have to wait and see just how well it really works.
