Soap Jelly Recipe:
Economical Soap Jelly Mix:  (Transforming a bar of soap into 20 litres of washing mixture!).
  Grate one bar of soap. Put one half in one 10 litre bucket. Put the other half of grated soap in another 10 litre of water. Add ½ cup washing soda and 2 litres of boiling water to each bucket. Stir both buckets until mixture has dissolved. Top each bucket up to full with water.  Leave to cool to form a thick jelly. Approximately one cup of this mixture per wash (in the washing machine) will be sufficient for a full load of washing. It can also be used for other washing tasks in place of ‘detergents’, ie. Dish-washing, hand washing, shampoos, shower gels,  etc.
This mixture will make enough soap jelly to last some months – all from one simple bar of soap – how cheap is that?!
