Homemade Laundry Detergent
I got this idea from http://go.tipjunkie.com/hm/518/www.greatoakcircle.com/homemade-laundry-detergent . I found it on Tip Junkie but it originally came from www.greatoakcircle.com go checkout their site they have a lot of great ideas.
It is super easy to make and seems to work really well.
2 Bars of Fels Naptha Heavy Duty Laundry Bar Soap. Grated ( I used a cheese grater and a lot of elbow grease it makes about 4 cups)
2 boxes of Baking Soda
6 Cups of Borax
4 Cups of Washing Soda
mix all ingredients together and put in storage containers. Just an FYI it is very powdery mix it gently. I actually put mine in a large plastic bowl with a very tight fitting lid and shook it to mix. I let it settle before opening the top but I still got the taste of baking soda in my mouth from all the dust.
It will make 4 Quart jars of Laundry Soap
I made the tag from a download from http://www.graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/ . I just downloaded one of her beautiful frames that she offers and added my own text.
Use 2 tablespoons per load of laundry.
