ok, i’m not going to get into the theological failings of that statement.
Sunday The Wife and I made 4 months worth of laundry detergent, about 6-7 lbs of bar soap, and a quart of shaving “cream.” all are recipies I’ve discovered elsewhere, i apologize for not giving the sources credit…i don’t remember them all.
- 1/2 cup 20 mule team borax
- 1/2 cup washing soda (soda ash)
- 1 bar ivory or Felsnaphta soap (ivory smells cleaner, fels works better on stains, we typically do a 2:1 ivory to fels ratio and achieve strong resluts).
we pulvarize everything in a food processor then mix it all together.
- 24 oz coconut oil
- 24 oz olive oil
- 38 oz crisco
- 12 oz lye
- 32 oz water
- essential oils and botanicals to taste (that’s just an expression… don’t actually taste it)
we made chocolate oatmeal, and pepermint this round. I’ve got a great idea for an IPA soap with hops and grapefruit oil.
Click Here: except we used cedar oil this round instead of rosemary. The Wife loves this stuff for her legs, and i haven’t had razor burn or dry skin on my face since I started using this stuff… added bonus is it rea lly extends the life of razors.
