How to make natural liquid (laundry) soap

First the good news,
no abnormalities were found in my liver, lungs or bones.
What a relief
getting better and cured is a possibility again.

No granny square today.
I just don`t seem to get more squares done.
No time, tired, my arm hurts, bleh.
Hopefully next week.
Although I have my first chemo next Thursday,
we`ll see.

Now on the subject
how to make your own natural liquid (laundry) soap.
With soda you can use it to do your laundry and
as an all-purpose cleaner.
Without soda as hand soap
and we are also using it as shower gel.
It is not ideal as a shower gel  because it doesn`t foam much 
but if you don`t mind that
this is a good, cheap and natural option.

I use Savon de Marseille
which is a natural gentle soap.

Savon de Marseille is traditionally green or white.  The white soap is made with palm oil, the green with at least 50% olive oil.  Both varieties are exquisite, ultra-moisturizing skin care. Marseille Soap is recommended by dermatologists throughout the world for dry skin and other ailments.  Its incredible purity and moisturizing properties make it ideal for sensitive skins.  In France it has been trusted for generations to cleanse everything from linens to little faces.

In the Netherlands you can buy it here and the US here.
I use the scented bars for the liquid soap
and the grains for the laundry soap.

You need:
80 grams (2.80 ounces) grated
5 liter boiled water (still hot)
100 gram (3.50 ounces) baking soda (for the laundry soap)

On the stove, dissolve the grated soap in 1 ltr. boiling water.
Add the soda (optional).
Add the remaining 4 ltr. hot boiled water.
Let it cool for 24 hours.
Store it in a container with a lid
and/or clean old laundry soap bottles.
With this laundry soap you have to use a laundry ball 
which you put  between the clothes.
I use 60 ml per load.

Easy peasy and cheap!

  1. mmmm momenteel valt mijn haar uit en helaas heb ik wel een uitzaaiing in mijn bot. Ik heb net de eerste chemo achter de rug en het viel mij tegen. Ik ben wel wat gewend met 6 dagen werken en weinig tot niet ziek, maar dit was niet leuk! as dinsdag de tweede kuur. Ik kan je alleen maar heel veel succes en sterkte wensen en feliciteren dat er geen uitzaaaiingen zijn in je vitale organen en bot. Zet m op en blijf creatief! lieve groet Paula (voorheen 1968 de winkel)

    1. Hoi Paula, wat spijt me dat om te horen. Ik heb as. donderdag mijn eerste chemo, we zitten dicht bij elkaar in het schema. Ik wens je veel sterkte en denk aan je.

  2. Wat een geweldig nieuws! Ik ben blij voor je.

  3. I am so pleased to hear that your scan was clear Michelle. It will be much easier to think you only have to fight the battle on one front. Good luck with your chemo. Pretty soap. Philippa xx
