Laundry soap? My GF learned to make it from her grandmother and we make all our own. It works pretty good, and is way cheaper than buying it from walmart. You can make it whatever scent you like, or none.

Just curious if anyone else does, or opinions on it.

My wife just made 5 gallons of our own laundry soap...I wish I could say she is getting into prepping...her motivation was to have a chemical free soap to wash our clothes with.

She also made homemade shampoo.

She is working on a homemade sunscreen too...she hasn't had time to make it yet.

I'll get the recipe from her and post it. They're all cheeeap things at Walmart. She cooks it on the stove and then pours into a 5gal bucket with a lid. I used it and it worked pretty good. One of the kids has a skin issue and she's used it fine.

We use the dry version of this recipe. 2c Borax, 2c Washing Soda, 1 bar of Fels Naptha grated. Mix all together. We use 1 tablespoon per load.

Can you share the shampoo recipe? I'd be interested in the sunscreen too if it ever comes about :cool:
