Follow procedures for making soap. This formula will make laundry soap for 28 loads. Once made, the soap will last years if kept in a cool dark location. You will notice this soap has a very dry flaky consistency, this makes it easy to grate. This soap formula is strong enough to clean laundry and floor surfaces we suggest that you wear rubber gloves while grating your soap.
Laundry Soap Formula
1. Follow the directions for making soap. Leave soap in mould for 24 hours. Cut into bars. There is no need to cure this soap.
To Use: "Grate Method"
Grate 1 cup finished soap per full load of laundry. For heavily soiled laundry use up to 1½ cups of grated soap per load. Fill washer to 1/4 capacity with hot water and add grated soap (this will melt the soap flakes). Allow washer to agitate a few times. Fill the washer with desired water temperature.
"No Grate Method"
Place finished block of soap (100 grams to 1 liter of water) in a container of boiling water. Allow to dissolve overnight. Your soap will dissolve better if cut in smaller pieces. Use 1 to 2 cups of dissolved soap per load.
Optional Ingredients: To be added to washing machine before clothing.
1. Add 1/2 tsp (2.5ml) of Cranberry Lane’s "Home Free" Essential oil blend to the water, before clothes are added.
2. Add 1 tbsp of Baking soda and 2 tbsp of Borax per regular load.
3. For whites use 1/4 cup of Borax per load. Always pre-dissolve Borax in hot water before adding to washing machine.
