Soap base contains: Goat milk, fair trade shea butter, organic sunflower oil and coconut oil, organic palm oil, castor bean oil, sodium hydroxide.
Recipe for Homemade Laundry Detergent:
1 grated bar of Aunt Ida’s Goat Milk Laundry Soap
1 c Borax
1/2 c Baking Soda
1 c Washing Soda
Mix well and store in an air-tight container.
Usage: 2 tbsp of detergent for top loading full loads. For front loading HE washers, use only 1/2 this amount or 1tbsp. You may want to adjust the usage depending on your particular washing machine.
NOTE: Although this laundry detergent does not make a lot of suds, as you would normally see with conventional store bought detergents, does not indicate that it is not working. Also, because of this homemade laundry detergent is low suds makes it great to use in HE washing machines.
For an even fresher, cleaner load of laundry, use 1/4 to 1/2 c of white vinegar in place of your fabric softener! The vinegar will help to rinse out any residual soap from your clothes and will help to make them softer! By using vinegar in the rinse cycle, your towels will be more absorbent too!
