Homemade Laundry Detergent
1 bar soap (grated- I used Fels Naptha)
1/2 cup borax
1/2 cup washing soda
3 gallons total water
use 1/2 cup per full load- 1/4 for small half loads.
grate and melt 1 bar soap into pan filled with 1 gallon water- do not boil. Once dissolved add borax and washing soda-stir to dissolve....add 2 gallons water, pour into containers....can use right away....will "gel" in a few hours. ( I stored mine in the 5 gal bucket and stirred it before each use)
