So. Much. Laundry Soap!
I told you here how to make homemade laundry soap. Here are some pictures of the final product, after it sat for about two days and I finally had time to put it into containers and do some laundry with it.
(Above) In the bucket. Kind of frothy on top.
(Above) Here’s a better shot so you can see what it really looks like. It’s pretty watery, and very cloudy.
(Above) I had been saving random containers for a while, knowing I was going to be doing this. I filled two dish soap bottles, one powdered creamer container…
(Above) …one empty laundry soap container…
(Above) …and an empty apple juice bottle. I had about a cup or two left, which I ended up using for a few loads of laundry and dumping the last of it down the drain (I’m out of bottles and have enough here for a YEAR or so of laundry!).
I did four loads of laundry: one dark clothes, one light clothes, one sheets and towels, and one queen sized comforter. The clothes had no smell whatsoever coming out of the washer. Perfect – that’s what I was going for. I washed one towel that had seed starters sitting on it with quite a bit of dirt spilled on it, and it came out clean.
We have no kids or pets, and only regularly do two loads a week (one light, one dark. It’s just me and The Hubs here.) For our limited laundry needs this should be just fine!
