    Step 1

    Partners in grime!!

    Step 2

    Grate your Fels Naptha bar on an old hand grater. I do it on an old plastic lid or paper plate to make it easier to dump later.

    Step 3

    Take the 2 cups water and grated Fels Naptha and boil until melted and combined. You may need to use a whisk to incorporate all the bits.

    Step 4

    Take cup of borax...

    Step 5

    ...cup of washing soda...

    Step 6

    ...cup of oxyclean...

    Step 7

    ...and melted Fels Naptha...

    Step 8

    ...into your 5 gallon bucket.

    Step 9

    Fill with hot tap water to about half way. I use an old stick blender to emulsify it all together.

    Step 10

    Cover and let set overnight. Take your stick blender and re-emulsify to a liquid and fill your recycled jugs!

    Step 11

    The finished product!
