Step One

Consumer Voice - - Household Detergent Powders -

Here’s what you need (a lot of these items are house­hold sta­ples): – One bar of soap (try to get a non-toxic one) – One box of wash­ing – One box of bo­rax (this is not nec­es­sary, but I’ve found it re­ally kicks the clean­ing up a notch – one box of bo­rax will con­tain more than enough for tons of batches of this home­made de­ter­gent – if you de­cide to use this, be care­ful) – A five-gallon bucket with a lid (or a bucket that will hold more than 15 litres) – Three gal­lons of tap wa­ter – A big spoon to stir the mix­ture with Put about four cups of wa­ter into a pan on your stove and turn the heat up on high un­til it’s al­most boiling. While you’re wait­ing, whip out a knife and start shav­ing strips off the bar of soap into the wa­ter, whit­tling it down. Keep the heat be­low a boil and keep shav­ing the soap. Even­tu­ally, you’ll shave up the whole bar. Stir the hot wa­ter un­til the soap is dis­solved and you have some highly soapy wa­ter.
