TRIED IT!! Make Laundry Soap from Bar of Ivory Soap
I stumbled across this "recipe" in a magazine called "Keepers at Home". I am going to try this and I'll report back on this post how it works out...sounds almost too easy!!!
Melt one bar of Ivory soap with some water on the stove. When dissolved, pour into a gallon container 3/4 full of warm water. Turn a few times to mix and then turn again the next day. Use one cup per load, turning each time you use it. For dish towels or diapers, you can add a few drops of lavender or tea tree oil for antiseptic properties.
