Homemade Laundry Soap!

Are you sick of paying SOOO much on laundry detergent? I am! Here's a great way to save a ton of money and still get your clothes squeeky clean! It should last you at the very minimum 9 months and at the max 1.5 years!! Now THAT my friends is awesomeness!! :) You only need 1 tablespoon per load! And it's not too sudsy so it should be safe for High Efficiency Washers.

1 4 lb box Borax
1 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
1 4lb box Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
3 bars of Fels-naptha soap
2 small containers of oxyclean or store brand oxyclean
(this is optional, depending on how messy your family is lol)

(you can also use pink Zote soap instead of Fels-naptha which can easily be found at Home Depot)
You should be able to find all of these at your local grocery store.

 Start out by grating your Fels-naptha soap just like cheese. You can use a food processor or just use your hand held grater, what ever you have. Toss all ingredients in a 5 gallon bucket lined with a garbage bag. This part makes your whole house smell great. Once everything is mixed store soap however you like. I chose a jar that I keep above my washing machine, I also got a little scoop to keep inside. Wasn't that easy? Sure was! Enjoy your soap. And remember, all you need is 1 tablespoon per load because it's stronger than your average store-bought detergent. :)
