- Bar Soap
- Washing soda
I've used quite a few of them, but in this recipe I'm using Fels Naptha mainly because I found a box on sale (remember-- I'm cheap). Lots of people have been asked me, “What the heck is Fels Naptha?! Why can't I just use regular soap?!” To which I reply it is a soap, but it’s not just any soap-- it's made to clean. It’s been around for over 100 years and it’s pretty heavy duty. However, it is NOT body soap. It’s a cleaning product. So, please, for the love of God, do not eat it, wash your child's mouth out with it or anything else that would involve putting this inside of your body.
It’s Fels Naptha’s cousin.
- 1 bar of plant based soap, shredded, grated, or whatever (see below)
- 1 cup of Borax
- 1 cup of Washing Soda
- Fels-Naptha: $0.99 at Publix, $1.49 at Ace
- Borax: $3.99 at Publix, $4.99 at Ace
- Washing Soda: $2.50 at Publix. Didn’t find it at Ace.
When I find cheap things that are better for me than more expensive things it makes me feel like I’ve conquered something truly menacing… and maybe even evil. Yeaaahh… evil. I’m totally like the Harry Potter of the domestic world. Badass.
