Many people choose to make their own fragranced soap bars as both a hobby and a way to save money. It is also possible to make homemade laundry soap bars. Although it is more common for people to make homemade liquid laundry soap, some people choose to set the liquid soap in a mould and allow it to harden during the final phase of the manufacturing process. Ingredients for making your own laundry soap are easy to find, and you should be careful when pouring the liquid soap into the mould so that you do not spill it on yourself.

  1. 1

    Grate the bar of soap into the saucepan, and add water to a depth of 1 inch. Turn the stove on a medium heat setting, and stir the mixture until the soap dissolves.

  2. 2

    Pour 4 cups of hot tap water into the bucket, then added the melted soap mixture, Borax and washing soda. Stir the bucket until all the powders dissolve.

  3. 3

    Fill the bucket all the way to the top with hot water, and let it stand overnight so that the mixture thickens.

  4. 4

    Pour the mixture into the soap mould until the mould is full. Put the mould in the refrigerator so that the solution will harden. Once the soap bar has hardened, you can remove it from the mould and cut it into smaller pieces to use with your laundry.

Tips and warnings

  • You can add scents to the soap, such as lavender, rosemary or tree tea oil.
