    Homemade Laundry Detergent WHAT YOU'LL NEED 1 – 55 ounce box of Arm & Hammer® Super Washing Soda 1 – 76 ounce box of 20 Mule Team® Borax 1 – Bar of ZOTE®, Fels-Naptha® or Ivory Bar Soap. Ivory is more common but both ZOTE® and Fels-Naptha® are made for and sold as “laundry bar soap.” I found Fels-Naptha and Borax at CVS Pharmacy. The Washing soda I found at my local grocery store. All items were found in the laundry isle. A SIMPLE RECIPE Each batch yields approximately 32 ounces (between 32-64 loads based on how many Tbsp used per load). 1 bar of shaved bar soap (Ivory, ZOTE, Fels-Naptha) 1 cup of borax 1 cup of washing soda It’s SO MUCH easier if you use a food processor. Grate the soap with a food processor attachment. Then blend with the other ingredients. Put them into the food processor again with a normal blade to make it a fine powder. What I pictured is a triple batch in a 4.3 qt container. It's easy to make, took me 10 min. A normal load takes 1 tbsp but use 2 for large or soiled loads. As far as front load washers, what I read is that the main concern with those and detergents is that since it uses less water you need a low foam detergent. This works. It's low foam and I also read that it worked for those washers online. I would stick with the powder form, the reviews I read about trying to make a liquid were messy, time consuming, and you end up with slime that you have to stir before use. Doesn't seem worth it when the powder form is so easy. I've used this for months now, and it works really well and without all that fragrance.

    only need a tablespoon per load (we just use the oxy scoop) and it smells so good! Needless to say, I will NEVER purchase another laundry detergent brand. This has inspired me to make more homemade cleaning products :) very exciting!" Laundry soap recipe - $20 for 9+ months' worth of soap.

    Will take the stains out of almost ANYTHING...even if it is an old one. REALLY WORKS!! 2 part hydrogen peroxide to 1 part Dawn ( original blue) // I saw this idea before but didn't realize you could just put it in a spray bottle as a stain remover spray. Will definitely try!
