No-Grate Homemade Laundry Soap | One Good Thing by Jillee....3 T Borax, 3 T Washing Soda, and 2 T Dawn Dish Soap (any kind) boil 4 cups water and mix with ingredients in one gallon jug, let cool, and then fill jug almost to the top with cold water. The bottle will overflow out of the bottle. Use 1/2 cup to 1 cup per load.
ONLY use this and it leaves floor spotless. (Heavy duty floor cleaner recipe: cup white vinegar 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap cup baking soda 2 gallons tap water, very warm.) It leaves everything smelling amazing.
I boiled 2 c water and dissolved the dry ingredients with the Dawn (in a large glass measuring cup apparently I learned from earlier experience today). When cooled slightly, I poured it into my plastic bottle and added 2 c tap water and shook it. If you used 1/2 c for the original recipe, this would only require 1/8 c and would take up 75% less space on my shelf.
How to get your dirty whites clean again... HOT HOT HOT water, 1 cap of laundry detergent, 1 cup powdered dish washer detergent, 1 cup bleach, 1/2 cup borax. Tell you what, you have to rewash it once to put softener in but its the whitest youll ever see your whites. If you omit the bleach it works great to get stains out of colors too (baby spit up is no longer a stain on OLD clothes)
