EASY LAUNDRY SOAP

EASY LAUNDRY SOAP
4 lb. grease, at room
temperature
1 can lye
2 pt. water
1/2 c. borax
1 c. soap powder

Do not melt lard. Mix water, lye and lard. Stir
together until lumps are melted. Add borax and soap powder. A
dash of bluing may be added. I use only 1 1/2 pints of water
and add 1 cup sudsy ammonia.

How to clean brown water stains from your dishwasher

How to clean brown water stains from your dishwasher.
Remove all dishes from your dishwasher. Place "Tang" (fruit
juice powder) in the soap dispenser. Run dishwasher through
full cleaning cycle. This will not harm the dishwasher or your
septic system!

Those are great chef....I have one that I happened upon by mistake.

I was having a bath one day and I ABSOLUTELY need bubbles in the bath.....I have issues with any type of floaties, any wyas, being as I had no bubblebath I used Palmolive liquid dish soap...the new aroma therapy kind. Well after my bath, ,I gave the tub a once over with the rag and OMG if all the "build up" didn't come off??? hhmmmm what a simple way to clean the tub....

Homade Soap:
3 gal. rain water
3 cans lye
12 lb. grease
citronella for scent
Let boil until all is dissolved. Then add 6 more
gallons of rain water. Let boil from 1/2 to 1 hour. When
done, add salt (handful), add citronella. Cool and cut into
bars.

I read the post too fast and I thought I read "Homemade Soup", so I did a double take when I read the ingredients.
