|Everything you need for homemade laundry detergent!|
Homemade laundry soap
1 bar Fels Naptha soap (found in laundry section of store) you could also substitute Ivory
1 cup washing soda (not baking soda. Laundry section of store)
1 cup Borax (laundry section of store)
1 32oz container
First you need to grate the soap. I tried just sticking it in my food processor in chopped up chunks and that didn't work! Then you simply measure the other two ingredients into a bowl. Mix in the soap and you're done! It's that easy! If you truly want it to be a fine powder you could stick all this in your food processor, but it works fine and mixes together fine for me just like this! Then you add 1-2TBS per load of laundry.
Super easy and it works! If it can get out the stains my boys put on their clothes then it's good for me! I put mine in an old 32oz yogurt container that's labeled. Also, until I moved there was no store that sold washing soda near me. You can have it shipped to you. I never did and so I never made it before we moved. I was so excited a few months ago when they had washing soda!! Up next, homemade dishwasher detergent!
