handmade in the laundryroom.

fels naptha + borax + washing soda + a ton of water = handmade laundry detergent.

Here's how it all went down when I got together with some friends to make it...



this is not cheese... it's fels naptha. It's like a bar of soap.



after melting the fels in boiling water and adding the washing soda, we poured the mixture in a large container and stirred.



this is the consistency of it once it starts to cool.

Makes my clothes fresh and clean and is much more economical than buying regular laundry detergent.
