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!

  1. Seriously? I just bought the stuff to do this a couple days ago! I’m going to make the non-liquid version, though. Not looking forward to the grating.
