Tip for Laundry Soap

I have so many questions about the homemade laundry soap that I use...I thought I would give some clarification. First you can get the recipe that I use HERE

The pictures above show the first step...you can cut the soap into small pieces but it will melt much faster if you grate it. Also after you have it all combined into the large bucket...keep stirring it until it is cooled....I leave it sitting in my kitchen floor for a few hours and stir it when I walk by...of course I don't have little ones who might want to "play" in it.

After it sits..it WILL be lumpy....it is OK....really...I promise!!! Every time before I refill my container..I have to really stir the bucket....and still it will be thick and clumpy as I dip it into the funnel but after I add the last part of water and shake like crazy it is just fine!

I have been using it for almost a year and I love it! Smells good! Saves me a HUGE amount of money!

Thanks for posting. I can't get the link to work for the recipe though. By the way, your blog is quite encouraging to me. :)
