I have been making the liquid laundry detergent about about a year now. I like it but one issue that I have found, is that it does not remove all stains.
This is very similar to my laundry detergent recipe. I also make the powder kind, however, I make it all in the food processor, which grinds it to a very fine powder. I also found that the homemade laundry soap wasn’t deodorizing as well as I liked, so I added baking soda to the mixture. Now it’s perfect.
Made my first batch over the weekend, and made a discovery. I had a bunch of pieces of Ivory soap left over from making Ivory soap boats for kids a while back, and they’d gotten thoroughly dried out because we use Dove soap for showering. When I grated up the dried Ivory, it grated as a powder, and made mixing it with the other powders MUCH easier. So I recommend that you take the bar of soap out of the wrapper and put it somewhere where it can get good and dry before you grate it for the laundry detergent.

Just made this detergent today and have been using it all day. It seems to be working great! :) I used my food processor with the grating blade on to grate up the soap bar and it literally took about 2 minutes to mix up. It was great not to spend 20 bucks on laundry detergent at the store today! Easy, cheap and it works! Can’t beat that! :)
