In this post I said I was going to try making homemade laundry soap. Well, I made some earlier this week and guess what.....it works. I made 2 adjustment, first I double the borax & washing soap because the kids clothes can get especially dirty and secondly I added an essential oil called tranquility.
I put between 15-20 drops in the 10 qt bucket and I really like it. I had a hard time finding a place that sold essential oils, I finally found some at an organic grocery store. They had so many samples that it was hard to choose and keep the smells separate in my head. Most were so concentrated that I couldn't imagine the final smell....if that makes sense, and some were just gross!! Will post picture's later today. Below I put it in a jar so you could see the color, but it didn't turn out too well, its like a creamy off white and the next day its a clumpy jell mix.
