Mine is. Because I make it.
It does take a little time but it's worth it to me.
Below is the recipe I use with the step by step directions.
Here is the email I received in my inbox today that I read with ease, knowing that it didn't apply to me! What a relief. If this article does startle you, change. It's never to late!
Homemade Laundry Soap
What you need
> 5 gallon bucket
> Storage containers (with a pump if you prefer)
> Fels Naptha soap ( I have used this but I currently use THIS!)
You can use whatever bar soap you like, probably. I don't know for sure but both have worked for me
> Washing Soda
Grate 1/3 bar of soap and put the flakes into a large saucepan with 4 cups of water. Heat and stir until the soap flakes dissolve.
In liquid measuring cup dissolve 1/3 cup Borax and 1/3 Washing soda in 3/4 cup hot water.
Pour the bar soap mixture into the bucket and add the borax solution. Add enough hot water to make 2 galons. I don't measure I just add enough hot water until the bucket is like half full.
Then it sits on my kitchen floor and I stir it with a long handled wooden spoon every 15 minutes or so until it's completely cooled.
Then pour it unto the containers.
Use 1/2 cup per load.
Shake before using.
So that is it. I have never kept track of how long one batch lasts but it's quite a while.
Also, the soap I use now for the flakes is THIS (like I said up above) and it is good stuff as well. My Gramy orders it and she likes to keep me stocked up on it so I use that as well. It's good stuff too, as far as I know, but I haven't carefully researched it.
