Laundry Soap Recipe

Hello Friends.
This recipe is from "The Beehive Cottage"Miss Mary Jane. Thanks to her that I found this about 6-7 weeks ago, I made it, and am using the Laundry Soap and saving lots of $$$$$. I have tweeked it a little, and love the results.
Miss Mary Jane says that it's great for people that have allergies, or sensitive skin.

3 Bars Fels Naptha Soap --(usually Kroger carries this in laundry isle)
4-5 pounds of Borax
4-5 pounds of Arm & Hammer Washing Soda ( usually Kroger carries this
in laundry isle- and if you can get extra strength that would be great.)
4-5 pounds of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda

Shred soap and mix all ingredience together. Place in a airtight container.

Use 1-2 tablespoons for regular soiled clothes
Use 2-3 tablespoons for heavily soiled clothes

Now, my tweeking--take 2 cups of powder solution and add one (1) box of Rit whitner

Use only in white clothes, and if heavily stained soak for a while.

If you usually use fabric softner, you can replace it with white vinegar- 1/2 cup will do, and will not make your dry clothes have a odor. That will really save some money too.

My experience:
my towels seem fluffier, and my clothes are getting clean, even my husbands farm clothes are clean as a whistle. Also it's taken blood out without a stain left. (I washed immediately)

One more thing, the soap will not have a suds in it, so it's safe for front loading machines. I also think that's why the clothes little by little are getting fluffy because all the extra soap residue is coming out. Please let me hear about your experience. If my calculations are right, with whitener and all ingredience, my laundry soap is $14.00 plus change, tax included and should last my family of 3 (with a husband who farms and teenage boy) at least 6 months. I've already been using it for about 6 weeks and I don't notice a dent in my solution!

Happy Laundering......Linda

Happy St. Patty's Day

Top of the Mornin' to ya. No, I didn't wear green today, although it's my favorite color. I painted my office Sherwin Williams - Hearts of Palms - a beauitful green color, a very happy and soothing color. When I first painted it, I wasn't too sure, but as it dried, it's really pretty. Hydrangeas and daisies make it complete. Pictures to follow, but I wanted to post, Have a wonderful day. I hope that you day is complete with warm weather, smiling faces, and lots of Green

Hugs and Blessings,
