Whipped Laundry Soap

I’ve been making my own laundry soap since May of 2008. I’ve made both the liquid and the powdered varieties but was intrigued when I came upon this recipe for whipped laundry soap from The White Silk Purse on Pinterest.

It just looked so much nicer than mine… Especially the liquid stuff! It just looks like snot! (Sorry, but it does!)

This one is quite a bit of extra work, so I hope it is worth it!

For the full recipe, click HERE. But here is the shortcut version…

Grate Fels Naptha

Melt in water on the stove

Add in Borax and Washing Soda

Pour into jars and add water. Let sit overnight or for 8 hours.

Remove from jars and whip in mixer until light and fluffy

whipped laundry soap 06

If it didn’t seem so soapy, you’d be tempted to lick the beater ;o)

Pour back into jars. Use 1 Tablespoon per load of laundry.

I’ll let you know what I think of it later…

This is the same recipe as mine, but I don't "whip" it. I also heard you can use this basic recipe and take a certain amount (cant remember exact) and dilute it in water in a seperate container. Shake to mix and you got a true "liquid" detergent, not goopy.
