TIP #1Homemade Laundry Soap
The laundry soap I make comes out to about $1.50 a month. Pretty good! It works great and you can pick the scent. Here's the recipe I use. You will need a 2 gallon bucket.
1/2 bar of felsnaptha or ivory (felsnaptha is a great stain fighter. I find mine at Amish stores or Kroger)
1/2 c washing soda (not baking soda)
Grate the soap. (I use my food processor to shred it) Put into sauce pan. Add 6 cups of water. (That's 1 1/2 mason jars full) Heat on low/medium until soap melts. Make sure it…
