Homemade Laundry Soap: Part 3

The laundry soap thickened overnight. Now, take a clean and empty laundry soap bottle and fill it with the Homemade Laundry Soap. Shake well before each use. I am ready to try out the soap on a load of laundry!

I added 1 cup of the Homemade Laundry Soap to my washing machine. The soap does not make bubbles, but that is ok. The bubbles are not what cleans your clothes. The soap smells really nice. I can't wait to see the results!


  1. Love the step by step directions and the photos!

    My Frugal Friday post was on homemade laundry detergent, too. :) I make the powdered detergent, though, because it seems easier. At first I was concerned that it wouldn't dissolve in cold water, but I've had no problem at all.

  2. How great! I've been wanting to try this for awhile. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Just curious why you didn't use Fels Naptha soap?

    I used the Ivory in my first try at this, and the soap re-hardened in my mixture. Did this happen to you?

  4. I didn't have any problems with the Ivory. I have now washed several loads of clothes with the Homemade soap and it has worked perfectly. I even had clothes with stains and the stains came out. I did pre-treat the stains. Go to this link to see why I didn't use Fels Naptha:

  5. many local restaurant have 5 gal bucket's with lid's I'm sure you can get for FREE :-}

  6. I made this soap off of the Dugger family site and I love it!
    Here's my experience with it:

  7. Can you use it in the new washers that require HE soap?

  8. Dawn,
    The homemade laundry soap does not make any bubbles so you should be able to use it in the HE washers.
