CURD SOAP A SUSTAINABLE DETERGENT



My 2 book is published, so the joy was enormous to hold it in my hands after long work. I do not know about you, but I have always been a great concern not only to pamper my skin with natural cleaning and care, but also to run a sustainable household.


So I've been sampling, tweaking soap recipes, testing stain soap, and stirring dish soap. I also devoted a large chapter to the recycling of soap residues. I was allowed to package all this knowledge in the form of a book "Natural Soap for the Household". With me was Sabine, who supported me as with my first book "Naturseife selber machen" with dreamlike photos of my creations. Thank you Sabine for your patience, support and creativity.


To celebrate, I would like to share a recipe from my new book for a laundry detergent (coloreds) made from curd soap.


CURD SOAP - DETERGENT FOR COLORED LAUNDRY


200 g curd soap (olive oil base)

300 g soda (sodium carbonate - washing soda)

300 g washing soda (sodium bicarbonate)


1. finely grate curd soap

2. with gloves, mix the curd soap, soda and baking soda in a bowl.

Store the powder in an airtight container in a glass jar.


Application


Depending on the degree of soiling, 1 - 2 tablespoons. If the water contains lime, the amount of detergent increases. I recommend emptying a shot of vinegar into the dishwasher compartment to prevent the formation of lime soap.

Every now and then run the washing machine empty only with the addition of vinegar directly in the drum.


Good luck!
