Turn your favourite bar of Lavami Soap into laundry detergent and walk around smelling like soap all day! This is a borax-free recipe for those of you who are concerned about it's safety. Here's what you need:

- 1 bar of grated soap

- 2 cups water

- 1/2 cup washing soda

- 1/2 cup baking soda

- 4L hot water

- Huge bucket

- Empty containers (I used old 4L distilled water jugs but you could also use old laundry detergent bottles or even empty protein powder containers)


- In a pot melt the grated soap into 2 cups of water over medium heat.

- Remove from heat and add the baking soda and washing soda and stir until combined.

- Place mixture in a bucket with 4L of hot water and stir until everything blended.

- Let sit overnight until mixture has thickened into a gel.

- Fill empty containers 1/3 full of the soap mixture and top off with cold tap water.

- Close lid and shake well.

That's it! Use a 1/3 cup with each load.
