my pet bunny and I sat on the bed for a while 
and made some laundry soap

she stirred diligently
but I took the bowl away to measure out the other ingredients
just in case

despite my carefulness, 
we had a soap spill 
Daddy and I had gritty sheets last night!


Here's the recipe I use: 
1 bar Fels Naptha soap (grated), 1C washing soda, 1C Borax 
here's a website with more recipes using variations of the same ingredients.

and yes, I like it so far!

I am interested in your laundry detergent recipe. Could you post it, along with your thoughts on how well it cleans? I have one that I have used and I am not convinced that it is "getting the job done". Thanks!

p.s. Your little bunny helper is very cute!

oh I love those pictures!

we must be twins or something like that... I was JUST talking about making laundry soap again yesterday.

Is it the good 'ole fels naptha, washing soda & castile soap?

I didn't know you went with a different one! Mine is only 1/2 cup of borax and 1/2 cup of washing soda and 1 bar of Ivory. Glad it works!
