So I went on a detergent adventure. I used the recipe here – http://www.budget101.com/myo-household-items/whipped-cream-super-laundry-soap-3993.html. The longest part was waiting for the Fels Naptha to melt. It took for-ev-er. I added glycerin to both of the jars, but to one of them I added scent – fresh rain. I don’t think that a) I added enough or b) the scent is strong enough last through the full wash. I’m testing it out on the towels we’ve been using in the new pup’s kennel. Should be a good test in the grimy and smelly department.
It does thicken as it sits, and does resemble mayonnaise, so I wouldn’t leave it in the pantry, on the counter,or in the fridge. Currently, I’m storing mine in the laundry room. *gasp* I know! What a place to store laundry detergent.
Now just to wait for the load to get done to see if it’s acceptable…..
