How to make Big Batch Homemade Laundry Soap

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe household cleaner from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

While I love my homemade laundry soap and have been using it for years with very good results, I wanted the convenience of a larger batch. Especially with nice weather on the way, I don't want to have to say to my husband, "I would love to go and have some fun with you, but darn if I don't need to make some laundry soap".....

So here it is,

How to make a Big Batch of Homemade Laundry Soap.
Big Batch Laundry Soap!

1 box Washing Soda
1 box Borax
5 bars Fels Naptha Soap - grated*
4 C baking soda
4 C Oxy Clean

Combine all together, use just like the original recipe 1/4 c - 1/3 c per a load of laundry.

Now go have some fun!

  1. I have never made this but I would love to try!

  2. Does this work in HE washers?

  3. I don't have an extra food processor bowl. Do you think it is really a problem to use the same one for food? Fels Naptha doesn't have much fragrance.

  4. I don't see me doing this but I love that you do. And it does sound fun!

  5. We are so limited on what laundry detergent we can use, I am wondering if this would be the way to go for us. I am with Pam, now we have one of those washers that require (doubtful) He soaps. I have recently rediscovered Fels Naptha soap. I saw it on the shelf at Walmart, and had to buy it! I did not know it still existed!! I use it on the scrub board for tuff stains.
