Homemade Laundry Detergent
I found a recipe that I wanted to follow on a post at: www.beingcreativetokeepmysanity.blogspot.com
Here is what I used.
1 box 20 Mule Team BORAX (4lbs 12 oz)
1 box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (3lb 7oz)
4 boxes (1 lb each) of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
2 cups Oxi-Clean (I used the perfume and dye free version)
3 bars Colgate OCTAGON All-purpose soap.
I grated the Octagon with an old cheese grater. Grating the soap was a bit time consuming, so I just grated while watching TV. It probably took about 30 minutes, but I would stop for a bit, and come back to it.
I also bought an inexpensive set of measuring spoons, and put the TABLESPOON in with the detergent to use as my scoop. I am using a heaping tablespoonful per load.
