Homemade Laundry Detergent

Ingredients to make your own homemade laundry detergent:

1 Box of Super Washing Soda 3 lb. 7 oz.
1 Box of Borax 4 lbs 12 oz. size 
1 Box of Pure Baking Soda 4 lb.
3 bars of Fels-Naptha 5.5 oz. or you could also use Ivory soap

 

Instructions:

The first step is to grate your Fels-Naptha Bar. You can use a cheese grater to do this, or you can use a food processor as it is a lot quicker. Using a food processor,  first grate the bar like cheese, and then used the regular blade to grate down fine.  You could use Ivory soap (just microwave it and it will foam where you can just crush it into a fine grade).

Next grab a large bin or bucket and put a garbage bag inside of it. Then pour each one of the ingredients inside.

Mix all these ingredients up well.

Then add it all to your container of choice.

This makes about 18 lbs. of homemade laundry detergent.

You only need to use 1-2 tablespoons per load, and you can use it in your High Effeciency washing machine.  You may not think a couple tablespoons is enough but it's concentrated and it works very well.
