Someone had asked for the recipe I used to make my laundry soap so it it goes:
Grate the soap and put it in a saucee pan. Add 6 cups of water and heat until the soap dissolves. Add the washing soda and the borax and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat. Pour 4 cups hot water into the bucket. Now add your soap mixture and stir. Now add 1 gallon plus 6 cups of water and stir. Let the soap sit for 24 hours and it will gel. Used 1/2 cup per load.
I am really enjoying this liquid soap. I also add a scoop of Sun (generic oxyclean from the Dollar Store) to each load. I feel it gives it a extra boost and our water is a little hard so I think this helps. I am on my second batch now and plan on continuing to use it. Another helpful tip I have is to pour the soap into a old detergent bottle for easy pouring!
