Home made laundry soap
« on: January 29, 2011, 01:03:57 PM »

One of our Facebook Fan Page members mentioned that his wife makes home made laundry soap.

I thought that was interesting. Any of our members here use home made laundry soap?

If so please share the recipe with the rest of us.

A lady I know has a side business making natural soap for people use. I'll ask her what is required to make laundry soap.
We know the difference between soap and detergent. So it could be and issue.

How would this work in a front load washer? Would the soap gunk everything up??
