Here is hubby's shirt BEFORE:
up close on the stain with is more than likely some type of oil from his chain saws he uses. Generally unless I way pretreat with zout AND borax nothing will come out.
I did NOT use any pretreat at all.

There is only a very light stain left. This is awesome for a shirt he wore to work. It is very difficult to get these oils out of his shirts. I am sure if I had pretreated the whole thing would have come out but this was my test...
Cost breakdown to make the soap. .51 cents for 2 gallons! about a tenth of a penny per load! Big difference from Tide which is usually around .33 cents a load or more.
I got the recipe from the above site.
