I am still making my own laundry detergent. I made one change in the way I make it so I thought I would revisit this post The only change I made is in the shredding of the Fels Naptha bar of soap. I am now finely shredding the bar of soap using my metal grater. I usually do this while watching TV. Cover your lap with a towel or cloth. If you do not find Fels Naptha soap you can also use Ivory Soap.
Finely shredded Fels Naptha Soap
1 Cup of Borax
1 Cup of Washing Soda
1 Bar of Fels Naptha Soap
In a glass bowl combine well the Borax and the Washing Soda.
Mix well the Borax, Washing soda and finely grated Fels Naptha. To even pulverize more you may use a food processor.
Store your homemade detergent in a jar. For one load use 1 tablespoon of the mix. Sometimes I use 2 tablespoons for heavily soiled clothes.
This is a super economical recipe. One box of Borax will yield over 9 cups and 1 one box of the washing soda will yield just under 7 cups.
