Thank you for wanting to learn how to make Natural Liquid Laundry Soap!
This soap recipe was born out of necessity due to my daughter’s sensitivity to laundry detergents accompanied by the high price of “sensitive” detergents out there. You can make this a fragrance free laundry soap if you like. I find a little Fragrance Oil finishes it off nicely but you can really do it so many ways.

This is the ingredients list and items needed. And, this is not a beginner’s recipe. Please make cold process soap and hot process bar soap before trying this type of soap.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE BY WEIGHT EXCEPT BORAX

30oz boiling water for 1st dilution
30oz boiling water for 2nd dilution

Fragrance Oil or Essential Oil – I find that “earthy” smells are great for laundry! In the video I am using Sandalwood. You can also get FOs that smell like ‘clean linen’ or some other appropriate laundry smell. Get your nose out and go shopping! :)
