Here are the supplies needed:
1 cup of Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda
1 bar of Fels-Naptha soap
I first combine the Borax and washing soda.
Then begins the only tedious part of making the soap. I use the fine cheese grater to get the soap really broken down.
Every time that I do this Sammy sits and watches. She thinks that she is going to get some cheese. Poor doggy.
I put everything in the mixer and have it mix for a few minutes. This helps to both mix everything up and to further break down the grated up bar of soap.
Here's the finished product. I actually made a double batch. We put a tablespoon or two in each load. This should last for a couple of months and only costs a few dollars.
This isn't a goal, but it is a pretty easy project to save some money. From beginning to end it only takes about 15 minutes. Not bad at all.
