In order to avoid chemicals and save the environment; I make my own laundry soap. It works really well. No smelly clothes. In fact the clothes has no smell at all. And it also saves a lot of money 🙂 Very easy to make – all positive 🙂
The price of 20 litres of non-toxic, environmentally friendly easy-made laundry detergent is about 20 kr (3$). Any supermarket here selling this will charge you more than 50 kr for 1.5 litre
Here is how to make it:
Grate one bar of castile soap with a cheese grater or a food processor.
Put the grated soap in a pan with 2 quarts water and gradually heat, stirring constantly until soap is completely
Put 15 litres of really hot tap water in a 17 litre bucket and stir in 2 cups of Washing Soda until completely dissolved.
Pour soap mixture from pan into the 17 litre bucket. Stir well.
Cover and leave overnight.
Shake or stir until smooth and pour into empty bottles. I use old water and coke bottles.
Use 1 cup per load of laundry. To retain colour and soften the water, I use a bit of vinegar each time.
