Recipe for 2.5 liters detergent for white laundry and 2.4 liters for coloured laundry
- 80 grams grated Marseille or Marseilles Soap Flakes.
- 40 grams of soda
- 5 liters of water (boiling)
Boil 1 liter of water. Add the grated or chopped marseille soap. Stir well and keep stirring until all the soap is dissolved. Add four liters of boiling water.
Pour half of the suds into another pan and add the soda. Soda has a light bleaching effect and therefore it is suitable for white laundry. (Note: not all laundry machines tolerate soda, it may damage the aluminium parts).
Pour the detergent into empty, well-rinsed detergent bottles, specially saved for this occasion. Cool off the detergent and then add the cap on the bottle.
You now have five liters homemade and unscented detergent. This detergent is basically suitable for all laundry at low and at high temperatures (although it is not recommended on some websites to use for towels). The amount to use for doing the laundry is a whole laundry ball.
