14. I washing powder (Arm & Hammer washing soda)
and Mule Team Borax in this batch using the recipe I posted. I *did* use Fels Naptha (sp?) soap in this batch.

I stirred quite a bit and still have a solid layer of glop (the soap) on the top of the water. See down thread.

Thanks for the advice about the sodium bicarbonate.
