And here it is.. step by step...
1: grate half a block of Zote soap. I really didn't enjoy this part. I found that the fine dust produced by this action irritated my sinus' and it has a very strong fragrance... almost *gasps* suffocates! The zester side worked best!
2: melt soap in 4 cups water over med/low heat, til all the little bits of soap are gone and you are left with a fragrant soapy syrup... like this... *gasp* then fill a 5 gallon bucket 1/2 way with hot water and dump it in..
3: The next thing is like adding mayo and onion to the potatos, but instead its 1 cup washing soda and 1/2 cup borax to the pink, suffocating, soapy water, and stir stir stir it up.
4: Just fill it up with water, wait 24 hours and -Viola! Laundry Soap! (this is the Duggars' recipe... you can read more about it here. It makes a LOT!)
