I make my own laundry soap. It's not thick but it's helpful. This makes two gallons. Two gallons of hot water, 1 bar ivory soap, and a small box of baking soda. Grate and melt soap with a little bit of water. Mix the baking soda last thing.
I use a McDonald's Pickle pail. Of course, wash it out good.

I've made my own laundry soap for a few years. The ingredients are easy to find with multiple recipes online. I have tried liquid and powder. The powder ones make more sense to me, saving time and money. AND the powder easily breaks up in the wash, no white powder on clothes!
We have been making our own laundry soap for our family of 6 for over two years now. Works wonderfully. There are several different "recipes" available on the web. We also hang our clothes outside in good weather to dry. Imagine how much money we have saved over the years!
A couple of years ago, I started making all of my laundry soap, dish soap and fabric softener. It costs pennies to make, works just as well and keeps all of that nasty packaging out of the trash. I've even made my own sugar scrub for a treat in the shower! There are lots of recipes for homemade products online - it's really worth the search ♥
