I had a lot of fun reading the laundry soap threads and thought I would give it a try. The whole process went very smoothly.

Here's the recipe I settled on:

80% Coconut Oil
20% Lard
-1% Superfat
35% Lye Concentration

Freshly poured:


The next day - unmolded, ready to cut:


Grated:


Pulverized with equal parts washing soda in food processor:


It was a pretty simple process, and just required a bit of arm strength for grating. I tried it out in my laundry last night (about 2 tbsp for a large load) and it seemed to work great. I'll have to keep using it for a bit to see how much I like it!

I grate mine as soon as it's cool enough to handle. Too hard to work with otherwise. It's so easy to make though.

Good tip! I poured the batter around 9pm so I decided to leave it overnight before grating. Next time I'll definitely make it earlier in the day.
