I just finished my first HP batch it is a stain stick/laundry soap bar. I just poured it an couldn't wait to take a picture. So here it is. I will take more pictures when it has set up. And ready to cut. My camera doesn't take real good pictures.

Honestly, Because I am very new at this, and that is what the recipe I got said. I didn't want to change change it. Cause I am so new at this I was afraid I would mess it up it if I changed the recipe. That's why I used sugar.

Okay.......I thought maybe it was the secret ingredient. :lol: :lol: I am thinking hard on trying some out.

I think sugar is mostly for bubbles. I have an HE machine and the formulations for the detergant is low suds because of it. Like the difference between dishwashing soap and automatic dishwasher soap.

Trust me........do not use sub dishwashing soap, not even a little bit, if you run out of automatic dishwasher soap. :lol: :lol:

No I will not use for my dishwasher. When I do a load of laundry with my homemade laundry soap. I take a potateo peeler an shave a small amout off a bar an add it. I have not noticed it had many suds. But I just use a little in each load. It appears to me to boost the cleaning agents in my laundry soap. I can tell a difference. :) (But that might just be me) lol. An I didn't use the whole amount of sugar either. I probably only use 1/2 of what the recipe called for. Cause I ran out of sugar. Thanks for the advise.
