Home made laundry soap

Here's the scoop on making your own detergent. It is easy to make and you can adjust it any way you like.

1 C. Washing Soda
1/2 C. Borax
and 1 bar of soap, grated

That's the basic recipe. You mix it up and use 1 TBS. for a light load or 2 for a heavy one.

You can use it just like this and it will work great. For stain removal you can make it with the Fels-Naptha soap which can be difficult to find. I have found it lately in my local hardware store. Ivory makes for a great clean smelling load of clothes. Sometimes I add baking soda if I'm washing things like dog bed covers or bath mats. You can add essential oils also if you want.
