Melissa Koser's Laundry Detergent
- 1 bar unscented soap
- 1 c. borax
- 1 c. washing soda
This made enough to last us about half a year, doing two loads of laundry per week (I didn't count, so I can't be more specific). Before grating the soap, let it sit out until completely dry (some moisture had crept into mine and it did not grate well). Washing soda can be found at WalMart in the detergent section. This recipe works just as well as store-bought detergent, and for way cheaper.
- Finely shred/grate the soap, then mix with borax and soda and store in a dry area. Use 1 Tbsp. per load (does not have to be heaping); add before starting water.
