Q: What amount of Soap Flakes should I use? A: It helps to remember that Soap Flakes mixed with water are "soap and water", a pretty basic mixture that is very safe to use in almost any cleaning situation you might imagine. When your soap and water mixture looks and feels soapy enough for you, you are using the correct amount of Soap Flakes! Like most cleaning and laundry products, soap is consumed during use. Heavily soiled items require a bit more soap. Lightly soiled items require less soap. With very little water, Soap Flakes can be whipped into a lather, with more water, a soap and water mixture can be made as mild as you like.
Directions for Laundering with Soap Flakes Always follow garment labels for washing instructions. Make sure flakes are fully dissolved in water. Test for color fastness and wash non-fast colors and whites separately.Flame resistant finishes may be impaired by washing with Soap Flakes, refer to the garment label.
Handwashing In a bucket or tub, use about 1 gallon of warm to hot water and add enough Soap Flakes (approximately 1/4 cup) to ensure a rich creamy lather. The hotter the water, the better the Soap Flakes dissolve. Let the mixture cool to skin temperature or slightly above before starting to wash. Swish water around to mix. Work fabric in the soapy mixture and rinse well in clear water. Squeeze out, but do not wring out, the water from the fabric. After the initial squeeze out, wrap the fabric inside a dry bath towel and squeeze or pat dry to absorb more moisture. Ease back into shape and let dry flat, away from direct heat or bright light.
Automatic washing machines Top loading machines Add approximately 1/2 cup of Soap Flakes to the warm or hot water as the machine fills. Agitate briefly. Be sure flakes have dissolved completely before adding laundry. Wash as usual.
Durable water resistant fabrics Wash according to garment label but do not use softened water. Artificially softened water may adversely affect the fabric. In hard water areas, either use a bit more soap, or hand wash using a mixture of Soap Flakes and distilled water.
Go by feel. Feel the soapy water (be sure it is cool enough to not hurt your skin); if the mixture is slippery, and there are enough suds, you are using the correct amount of Soap Flakes. Always rinse well. Soap Flakes can be premixed with hot water to make a liquid concentrate which can be added to cooler wash water. Concentrate may become gel like, however this does not impair performance. Softer water works better with Soap Flakes than does harder water. When using Soap Flakes in a hard water area, add a water softening product to the wash water, or use more Soap Flakes.
For most uses, washing floors, washing horses or dogs, washing or cleaning most things, use approximately 1/2 cup of Soap Flakes to a bucket of water. Warmer or hotter water dissolves the Soap Flakes best. Always rinse well.People with nut allergies may want to avoid using this product as coconut and palm oils form the soap base.
Because your laundry has accumulated a ton of buildup from the water, the soap, and then other particles like dirt and bacteria, you really should do a chemical strip of your laundry in order to remove all of those nasties before going any further.

I make home made laundry soap it is Castile soap liquid or a bar I heat it up with water so it melts good then a put 1 cup washing soda and 1 cup twenty mule team borax and about 1/4 bar of Naphta stain removing bar I heat it up till it is liquified in a five gallon bucket and put about 3/4 cup per load and it works fine for me my clothes come out just fine and wash and wear just fine. not sure what home made soap she is talking about but my soap is fine!
So I wash my cleaning towels with lye soap I make myself. I put them in a tub with boiling water and soap power a bit of bleach and let them set overnight then I wash them with a wash board then throw them in the washer and they come out white and soft.
I always melt my soap when I add it to the washer. And vinegar removes buildup by adding a decent amount to the Rinse. This one old woman I knew always told me to add the liquid lye soap until I had a decent amount of bubbles when the washer was turning and add baking soda.
I just made up my first batch of homemade laundry soap. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do with it? Before I end up having to strip the clothes. I wish I found your article before I made it.
Wonderful article, I have learned a lot, thank you. Please what can I add to my hand made laundry soap to increase the cleaning strength? I only have add caustic soda to Palm Kernel oil to produce soap.Can anyone assist me with a recipe, using Palm Kernel oil. Thank you.
Did you ever try using vinegar as a fabric softener? Like with shampoo bars, vinegar rinse gets rid of the soap build up/film. You can add a drop of essential oil for scent and the vinegar smell disappears completely when the laundry is dry. Just a thought. 041b061a72
