How To Make Laundry Bar Soap

laundry bar soapMaking laundry bar soap can be a good business idea. You can also make laundry soap for house hold use so you will not have to buy it in the market. Below is the procedure on making the laundry soap made from coconut oil which is the main ingredient. Other materials needed can be bought from chemical stores or from ultima entrepinoy.

Materials/Ingredients (for 28 bars)


Preparation of Materials

Dissolve salt, soda ash and sodium silicate in 1.4 L of water.

Procedure on making the Laundry Bar Soap

  1. Measure or weigh carefully the required quantity of coco oil.
  2. Weigh the lye or caustic soda solution required (5 kg) and add slowly to the oil, stirring continuously for about 30-45 minutes until it attains the condensed milk-like consistency.
  3. Add the measured amounts of dissolved additives and CDEA (foam booster) with continuous stirring from 5-10 minutes more. Then add the essential oil with stirring. Stop stirring when the mixture attains a viscosity similar to condensed milk.
  4. Pour the homogenous viscous soap mixture into the moulder, allow to set at room temperature for 12 hours or until soap solidifies.
  5. Cut the soap into bars of suitable sizes with a string or wire attached to the wooden/metal cutter. Twenty-eight (28) bars will be produced. The soap is white or creamy white. Cut bar into 4 pieces and pack in a plastic bag.
  6. Allow to age from 7 to 10 days to complete the saponification reaction.

  46. I got 1 of the recipes of making laundry bar soap but what is confusing me is: (caustic soda 360Be) explain to me what u meant by that.

    by kasoma Hakim on Feb 20, 2012 at 10:47 pm

  47. Actually i have tried the above formula but its not so hand friendly (i mean it dries my hands after using)but with due respect… i suggest anyone can make a simple recipe laundry bar soap following the same procedure like the above. You can try it in small amount first then multiply it should it be successful. Basic Soap Recipe For Beginners Coconut oil 25 oz (prepared in a separate vat) Water 10 oz Lye 4.4 oz Soap colorant 2-5 drops (optional) Scent oil 1/2 tsp (citronella is most commonly used but you can try lemon, or sampaguita oil as well) This is a great soap recipe for beginners because it will harden relatively fast and have good lather right off. First. in a vat or pail or bowl, mix lye in to the water and stir well until it dissolves… of course take so much care in handling the solution. it gets hot, but as for me i let it cool. Pour the lye solution over the oil, and mix thoroughly until it lightly traces… then add the scent oil and the colorant. Stir again until it leaves a heavier trace. then transfer into your molder. Let the saponification begin and wait until its hard enough to cut. Then cut and let it sleep for 2 weeks… there you have your simple laundry soap.
