1 Bar of grated bar soap (Ivory, Fels-Naptha) This one will work much better if you finely grate the soap up.
1 Cup of Borax
1 Cup of Washing Soda
Mix all ingredients well and enjoy! I found that instead of stirring this up it required more of a light fluffing with a fork.
Use 1/2 C per load
My personal comments on this recipe:
This is a very easy recipe to make, which I love, but…….. I wanted to make sure that the ingredients would melt/merge with the water so I ran some experiments.
First, I put some of the detergent in cold water – nothing! No merging of water and detergent, I even waited for an hour. Then I tried warm water – the grated soap did not merge with the water, bummer.
I think with this recipe ya might want to use hot water when washing.
Let me know how this recipe works for you maybe you'll get different results??!!
Enjoy your washing.
