As an added bonus you can scent it with your very favorite fragrance! So here is a brand new recipe we have created for our Powdered Laundry Detergent!

 

Ingredients:

544 grams of Palm Oil

1270 grams of Coconut Oil 76

294 grams of Lye

2 Silicone Soap Molds 4 Leaf Molds

689 grams of distilled water

525 grams of Baking Soda

288 grams of Borax

56 grams of Snuggable Fragrance Oil

Mixing Bowls

Food Processor

Scale

Crock Pot (Make sure this is not a crock pot that you will not use again for food because of the fact that you are using lye in this recipe.)

Stick Blender

Burlap Bag

Decorating Ribbon

Safety Masks

Safety Gloves

Safety Goggles

 

Directions:

Always make sure to wear your safety equipment when working with lye!

 

First, weigh out your 544 grams of Palm Oil and 1270 grams of Coconut Oil 76 and mix them together carefully. Turn your crock pot onto the lowest setting and then you can pour your oils into the crock pot.

Next you will start your lye. Start by weighing out 689 grams of water. Then carefully add your 294 grams of lye to your water. Never add water to lye, always add the lye to water! Then mix it together carefully.

After your lye water is mixed, you can pour it into the crock pot with your oil mixture and then put the lid on the crock pot. Next, let it sit on the lowest setting for about two hours until it reaches the consistency of mashed potatoes. Make sure to stir it occasionally.

When it reaches the mashed potatoes consistency, place the soap into the molds and let it set so it can set up.

Once the soap is set up, break it up into pieces.

Heat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and then put 525 grams of baking soda into a clear cake pan and bake the baking soda in the oven for about half an hour to make washing soda.  This changed the chemical composition of the baking soda to washing soda.

After the 30 minutes is over, your baking soda should now be washing soda. Using a mixing bowl, weigh out and mix together 525 grams of the washing soda and 288 grams of borax.
