  • So here's what I did.
    I placed 2-3 cups of water in a medium size pot on the stove on medium heat. I let it come to a boil. Then while I waited in the mean time. I cut in small chunks of the Fels-Naptha soap or you can use Zote bar(you can use a cheese grater or a food processor to make it easier) with a knife I didn't have a grater.

  • When the water came to a boil I added the soap. Some people say it takes about 15 mins to melt but mine took 45 mins. While I wait the last 5 mins I added hot water to a 5 gal bucket half way full. Then I added the now liquid soap mixture to the bucket. Then I added 1 cup Super Washing Soda(do not confuse with baking soda but I hear some use baking soda) then added 1 cup borax. I then mixed the mixture with a spatula. You will know when it is completely mixed you will no longer feel grittiness at the bottom.

  • Once that is done add hot water to the mixture about 2 inches from the top( you will see foam/bubbles at the top but that is okay do not worry). Now when have done that then cover tightly with a lid. Estimated wait time is between 4 hours to 24 hours. I waited 6 hours then I basically used my clean hand which is easier to mix around. Mix until no more chunks. Then you can fill your jugs or mason jars up. What I did is I filled it to about where's there's going to be like 3-4 cups at the top. Reason is you need to fill about 3 and. 1/2 cups with water then leave room so you can shake it.

  • Now before every use I shake the contents and I use 1/4 cup - 1 cup of the mixture. It works wonders. My family and I love it. It works better then the name brands. Now a 5 gal bucket can last you between 6-12 months depending how often you do laundry. But it is amazing and it is safe for your skin. It is good for sensitive skin as well. And I heard it's great for baby clothing as well. :). It will save you a lot of money all year long. All these items probably cost me $20. You can use the detergent on tough stains all you need to do is per soak your laundry item for 15-20 mins. Well ENJOY! :)
