Fels naphtha soap takes out grease and cleans your clothes after being around poison ivy.. so I would grate a bar to have on hand to add to my detergent. They tell you to use oxi-clean to super clean your clothes.. so I always had that on-hand. They tell you to use borax to get out stains.. so I’d have that on-hand. Sound exhausting? It was!
I decided that was just too much work, why couldn’t all these ingredients be in the laundry soap to begin with? I researched different recipes, and found the best combination! Since it makes such a big batch each time though, I’m sharing here!
Each batch has hand-grated bars of zote soap & fels naphtha soap, borax, basic laundry detergent, washing soda, booster, baking soda, oxi-clean, and fresh scent crystals. I am now adding a powder fabric softener as well! It smells wonderful and does a better job of cleaning your laundry than any detergent alone!
Wanna know the best part? You only need 2 tiny scoops each load. This bag has approximately 90 scoops, so 45 loads! Scoop included.

I have been sewing since I was in grade school, working on projects for myself, friends, and family. I made fabric handbags, hair scrunchies, and designed Halloween costumes.
In 2011, I graduated as a Certified Medical Administrative Specialist, and for years worked in the medical field, keeping sewing as a hobby. I made scrub uniforms for myself and my co-workers. I studied patterns to make dresses & purses. I bought clothing at thrift stores to take them apart and study how they were put together. After working 10-14 hour days, I’d come home & sew till I passed out. I just knew I needed to switch professions one day or else never see the light of day!
In June of 2018, I took the plunge and finally turned my passion into a full time business. I took a course in business management & now have a beautiful boutique to be proud of!
I love being able to make clothing that makes people comfortable and happy. I take pride in being able to save material from being thrown in a landfill while doing it!
