    This is the one we use

    WASHING SOAP (LAUNDRY/KITCHEN), HAND CLEANER, GENERAL PURPOSE CLEANER RECIPE:

    10 litre recipe

    What you need:

    1 cup pure soap = 1 cake Velvet soap

    1 cup washing soda

    1 cup white vinegar

    3 teaspoons eucalypt or tea tree oil

    4 litres of cold water

    4 litres of hot water.

    What to do:

    Grate the soap or slice strips off with a vegie peeler and place into a large saucepan and cover with 2 litres of cold water.

    Bring to boil & add washing soda crystals, and stir until melted.

    Stir in eucalyptus oil, vinegar.

    Pour into a bucket and add 4 litres of hot water and then stir in 4 litres of cold water.

    Good when used for:

    *laundry detergent for front and top loading machines and hand washing. 2-3 cups depending on load size

    *pre-soaker for heavily soiled items

    *washing-up liquid 10-20 ml/10 litres of water.

    Got it off Gardenlen’s site a few months ago i think. Wife loves it and the bamboo’s like the water afterwards.
