Most importantly it's cutting down on plastics and water pollution.
Heat up a large pot with the water and add 5 tablespoons heaped with the brown soap. Then add the soda crystals and salt.
Stir occasionally so the soap blends with the water.
When the soap is almost blended, you'll see a layer on top of the water. Add the drops of essential oil, stir and cover with a lid.
When all the soap is diluted, you can turn of the heat.
Let is cool down while stirring once in a while.
You can use a funnel to poor the substance in old bottles.
Use one measure cap for one machine. Vinagre can be used as a softener and with very dirty clothes I add a bit of soda crystals directly in the soap compartiment.
