DIY Halal, vegan laundry soap.

It's not cooking, but it is halal!
I confess, i have not tried this specific recipe yet. I found it on Facebook posted by Kimberly Kenyon Newsome.. She always has some great stuff posted. Give her a fallow!

I know you may wonder.... "Halal Laundry soap?!" Yep! Some of the soaps you buy in the store contain animal products. To make soap you have to have fat or oil. Fat or tallow is a cheap byproduct in many bar soaps and laundry detergents.
Making your own laundry soap is easy and it saves a pretty penny, who can say no to savings?
Like I said, this recipe I have yet to try but I have made my own liquid laundry soap before with great results.
If you try this, please report back with your results!

1 box of borax
2 small containers of oxy
1 box of super washing soda
1 box of baking soda
2-3 Ivory** soap bars, grated ( just like cheese!)

It is all down the detergent aisle. The baking soda is the big box.
I take a cheese grater and grate the ivory bars, then I add all the ingredients in a bucket and stir. I do this outside because of the powders being dusty. I use one of the scoopers from the oxy to measure it out. I do 2 scoops for a normal load.

** The original called for zote bar soap, however zote is made with tallow ( animal fats) The liquid soap I have made, I used Ivory and it was a prefect substitute.

If you want to add a sent to your soap use essential oils. You can add any scent you like from lavender, sweet orange to peppermint. Just make sure you drop it in a few drops at a time and mix, mix, mix like crazy to get it evenly distributed.
