Here is the recipe:
- 1 bar Fels Naptha soap
- 1 1/2 cups Borax
- 1 1/2 cups Washing soda
- 5 gallon bucket
Optional: If you want your soap to have some sort of scent you can scent this with ½ to 1 oz. of essential oil or fragrance oil of your choice.
After 24 hours it will be very gelled, but I use a whisk and mixing spoon and stir it several times while it sets and it has stays at a nice consistency.
* The detergent does not bubble in the wash but it is cleaning!
* If yours did not gel correctly after 24 hours then use more soap next time....like 1/2 bar, but you can still use it if it isn't very gelled anyway.
* When it sets you may get a "egg drop soup" effect.....just mix/stir with a whisk, mixer or blender.
