Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
- 14.1 oz. (400 grams) lard
- 2 oz. (56 grams) of lye (Sodium Hydroxide)
- 4 oz. (112 grams) of water
- .5 to .7 ounce of essential or fragrance oil if desired
Don't overheat the lard, or else it can start to smell "cooked" - and you certainly don't want that in your laundry.
Once the bar is cut and cured, you can use it as the base for your homemade laundry soap.
