Since I've pinned these recipes to my boards on Pinterest I have had so many people asking me to get copies for them,mostly my FB friends. So here they are...
Liquid laundry detergent
1bar fels naptha bar, grated
-in a saucepan dissolve the fels naptha in the water
-divide mixture evenly into 2-gallon jugs then add water to the top. Soap will thicken & get slightly lumpy as it cools. Shake before each use.
-I use 1/2c.per load of laundry
Powder laundry detergent
2c.finely grated Fels Naptha soap
-I use 1/8c.per load of laundry/2TBS.....I prefer the powder over the liquid simply because it doesn't take up as much room in my small laundry room,they both work great.
2/3c.dawn liquid dish soap
-pour into spray bottle, shake well before each use......I used to use spray n wash,this works just as well if not better!
2c.sauve hair conditioner
-I use 1/2c. per load of laundry.....I like to add a few drops of essential oil to give it a stronger scent.
Olive oil facial cleanser
2c.finely grated soap
-will thicken as it cools,once its cooled whisk well before putting it into bottles(we all love this body wash)
-put water in blender. Melt beeswax in oil in a double boiler. Add essential oils. Pour slowly into blender while blending.(you may need to stir by hand alittle then blend again to get all the water incorporated).this stuff is amazing! your skin feels like silk when you use it.
Melt 1c.petroleum jelly in the microwave, stir in 1 packet of koolaid.pour into small containers. Will thicken as it cools.
By making these products myself I've saved our family an average of 40.-50.00 a month! Enjoy!
