If you have ever been curious about making your own laundry soap, now is the time to give it a try. There are several great benefits to making your own at home; its less expensive, you can control the scent, and you avoid most of the chemicals that are unnecessary in cleaning your clothes.
You can find all of the ingredients at most stores or on Amazon. You can add a lovely scent to your homemade liquid laundry soap using essential oils. Most other liquid soap recipes call for making 10 gallons at a time, I do not personally have storage space for 10 gallons, but feel free to double the recipe and stock up if you do. This one makes 5 gallons and is more than enough to last me awhile.
You can use recycled laundry soap containers, gallon milk jugs, or pitchers. I use recycled milk jugs to store excess and a pretty gallon glass jar to sit on my washer for what is being used currently. I tied on a pretty twine ribbon, and made a “hook” with a paperclip to hold the measuring cup, I like to have one dedicated to just my laundry soap so I am not scrambling to find one at wash time.
