Yup, I jumped on the bandwagon.
When our huge bottle of All Free & Clear was nearing its end I started looking into recipes for making my own laundry soap.
I opted for a powder formula so I wouldn't have to figure out how to store large amounts of liquid detergent.
-1 bar Fels-Naptha soap
-1 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
-1/2 cup Borax
1. Chopped the Fels- Naptha bar with a butter knife into 6/7 pieces
2. Food process the heck out of them. It takes a while in the food processor for the bar to turn into a powder
3. Add the washing soda and borax.
4. Process again.
5. Store and enjoy!
6. Use 1 Tbsp per load (sometimes 2 for very large/dirty loads)
Notes: Each batch makes enough for about 40 loads. Each load costs about $0.09.
I usually make 5 batches at once and it lasts us several months.
