Laundry meet homemade laundry soap (the new + improved version)
Laundry soap meet laundry
See suds fly
It was love at first spin ;)
Although I have posted a diy laundry detergent on the blog, when I saw this happy, pink bar of Zote at Walgreens, I knew I wanted to make a Valentine's Day version of the classic :)
Zote was new to me, but the $1.49 price tag and MORE WHITENING POWER on the side sold me! Plus, after reading more about this beloved Mexican soap, I was more convinced that it needed to be the main star of my laundry soap!
The recipe is the same (I just used Zote to make it extra fabulous!)2 cups of soap (FelsNaptha, Zote, Ivory...etc)
1 cup borox
1 cup washing soda
Grate the soap:
Mix it with the borax and washing soda:
Blend it (optional step) and store it:
When you're ready to wash clothes, use 1-2 tablespoons per load.
That's it! Even though it might seem like a lot of work, I can make a batch of detergent that will last me for months in about 20 minutes.
Have you ever made your own laundry soap? I encourage you to give it a "spin" if you haven't :)
