Homemade Laundry Soap

Today was the day! I finally got off my butt and made my own laundry soap. I enlisted the help of my sister-in-law and 3 nephews and we shared the final product. I got my recipe here. (Read the comments for some extra recipes and cool tips/variations.)

Boom! 10 gallons of laundry soap for roughly $7. And the Fels Naptha bar smells really good!

We also used the fabric softener recipe, but I ended up putting my portion in an old plastic butter tub so that I would have a lid.
