Hippy Dippy Style Soap

Disclaimer: I received this soap free as part of the Purx Insiders group.
I was not compensated in any way and all opinions are my own.

I don't know about you, but I have the most sensitive skin in the world. Just as my doctor, I have seen that biotch twice in the past month because I've had a rash/the itchy scratchies. Gross, right?! One of the things that I noticed is that if I use store bought soaps that have dyes and scents in them I itch or feel scratchy from those. So, my solution was to figure out how to make my own soap. Sounds awesome, right? Well, it actually is pretty awesome sauce because not only do I know exactly what I am putting in my washer, but it is also dirt f-ing cheap. I spent some time over my long 5 day weekend purchasing and making the recipe below. I highly recommend!

To make my soap all I need is:

1 Fels-Naptha bar (grated)
1 cup Borax (I use 20 Mule Team Borax)
1 cup washing soda (I use Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda)

Just mix that shiz up and you are ready to go! I use 2 -4 Tablespoons per laundry load, I use the top of a purex crystals cap as my measuring spoon and it works well for me.

What household cleaning tips do you have? I also love using vinegar as a household cleaner! I try to avoid harsh chemicals if possible.

  1. i use vinegar for a lot of things; including soaking my produce to preseve them longer and kill all the bacteria/clean all that shit off they spray it with. i fill the sink 1/2 way full of water and dump in 1cup of vinegar. toss in all my produce and let sit for 10mins.
