Making Laundry Soap A tutorial

What to do with lye-heavy soap

Laundry Soap (4)

It is not often that I have a batch that goes wrong. When it does I am usually chasing my tail and am really busy making too many batches at once. This was the case with this batch of soap. It was supposed to be Verbena and I have made it many times before so I knew the minute I took it out the mould that something was wrong.

I just knew it was lye heavy. When I sat down to think what went wrong I remembered using the wrong lye mix. Oh well I did not toss the soap, I decided to make Laundry soap. I have wanted to do this for such a long time so this was the perfect opportunity. Laundry soap is a great way to use up a soap that you may have normally thrown away. Remember your soap does not have to be lye heavy to make laundry soap it is just a great way to use it rather than throw it away.
