Today I made Laundry Soap!

Hi guys. Today I learned how to make laundry soap. I just grated 3 bars of Fels-Naptha soap into a 5 gallon paint bucket. Then I added 3 gallons of hot water and stirred it all up. Now I am going to let it set over night, and in 24 hours I will add in another 2 gallons. Then let it sit for 2 days. It should make about 5 gallons of really concentrated laundry soap or 10 gallons of non concentrated. I picked up the recipe on Becky's Homestead only she used Zote, and I could only find Fels where I live. I am a complete noob when it comes to making this, so this is my first foray. I figure this is a bit cheaper than buying it at the store.

Still working on it, It has one more day to set, then I will test it out on a load, but everything is going according to the recipe so far.
