Tonight I started a batch of laundry soap. I should have opted to just make half the recipe, as I am short about 2 containers. (milk jugs will have to do) This will make about 10 gallons of soap. Enough to last me a year.
I have a front loading washing machine. I will use about 2-3 tablespoons per load.
We are on a septic tank. All ingredients are natural and do not harm the septic system. They are also easy on the skin. You can add scents if you want, but I don't.
I mix it up in my mop bucket. It will sit over night and in the morning it will be gel like. I will then fill containers half way with the laundry gel, and top off with hot water to fill. Cap well.
Before you do a load with this soap you do have to shake the container--it will sometimes settle.
If a years supply of soap scares you, you can make just have or a fourth. Also remember, you can always add more water if you didn't cap it good and it tries to dry out.
