Katzcradul demonstrates how to make liquid laundry soap. It's so quick, easy and incredibly economical.

1 bar Fels Naptha bar soap (Zote or Ivory bar soaps work too)
1 cup washing soda
1 cup borax

Grate bar soap with a cheese grater. Simmer large pot of water on stove with grated soap. Stir until melted. Fill a 5 gallon buck half full with warm water. To the bucket of water, add washing soda and borax. When pot of hot soap water has cooled to lukewarm, add to bucket. Stir well and let sit overnight, with the lid of the bucket just resting on top, not sealed down tight. In the morning, stir to blend and slightly break up. Use 1/2 cup of the mixture per load.

Here'e the math!
Fels Naptha bar of soap - $0.97
Arm & Hammer Washing Soda - $0.43/cup
20 Mule Team Borax - $0.37/cup

Total..................................................$1.77/ 5 gallon bucket

5 gallon bucket = 80 cups (16 cups in a gallon)

80 cups = 160 half cups

$1.77 / 160 = $0.011.....just a little over $0.01 per load!

(Yes, I really did measure out all the borax and washing soda.
