Making Laundry Detergent

I found this while on Southern Plate.  Please keep all ingredients away from children.  ~hugs~

My children had itchy skin but don't any more since I have used this.  ~hugs~

*This does not make many suds and is perfect for your HE washer.  ~hugs~

Homemade Laundry Detergent
*This was based off of Tipnut.com’s recipe #4, I just altered the amounts
  • 4 Bars Laundry Soap (to yield 12 cups of soap shavings)I use Ivory Bar Soap
  • Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar Soap can be usually be found in the laundry isle
  • 6 Cups Borax (this is roughly one box)
  • 6 Cups Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (this is roughly one box)
Grate soap using cheese grater. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Place in sealed container and measure out two tablespoons for each load.
