    Just a little added Blurb… you should run white vinegar in your rinse water if you don’t already… ( I use that for my softner no your clothes dont smell like pickles 🙂 ) and NEVER NEVER Use Liquid Bleach and Vinegar together caustic… The Vinegar helps with not having soap build up in your pipes…

    Also on tipnut they have alot of recipes for laundry soap liquid and dry…small batch and LARGE lol

    I never have to worry about that, no plumbing and no running water, LOL. Vinegar also is a nice hair rinse.

    I used this laundry soap recipe listed here, and it works great! My colors are so bright and there are no harsh smells to stir up my asthma/allergies. Once again, thanks for sharing it.

    I could not find the Fels Naptha here in my town so I used Ivory. ( I read a recipe somewhere that suggested it)

    One of the original selling points for Ivory was that it floated in water. It meant that when you were doing laundry and the soap dropped in the tub, you didn’t have to blindly grope in the bottom of the tub to find it; it simply floated to the top.

    Not really. We’re talking about materials you can use to make laundry soap that can be used in modern washing machines. If we can substitute Ivory, then all the better.

    Shelli – yer so right about making this a great place for people to come and wake up and start prepping – look at YOU teaching the APN’s motto – you go girl!
    (and i think that you are going to have to get over that “hard time taking compliments” thing – seems you have been getting quite a few compliments from several members on a few forums now????)
    (oh…and we really need to do an “intervention” about that “smiley” thing that you got going on…i know it’s hard…but take a deep breath, stand up in front of the forum and say…”my name is Shelli. and i am an addict. i am addicted to smiley emoticon-thingies.”

    you can do it Shell…we’re all here to help! bahahahahha!)

    I’m lucky. The grocery store across the street sells it for $1.10 normally. Now all I have to do is find a used cheese grater to use in grating it and I’ll be set to go.

    I finally found a local store that carries Fels Naptha. Of course, I had already stocked up on ivory. LOL!

    Oh well, now I have both and have plenty to last for a while should I need it.
