DIY Laundry Detergent
2 tablespoons for a regular load
3 tablespoons for a large load
1 (4 lb. 12 oz.) box of Borax
4 lbs. Arm and Hammer Baking Soda
1 (3lb. 7 oz.) box of Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda
4 bars Fels Naptha Soap, grated (on a cheese grated)
optional: 1 (3 lb.) container Oxy Clean free – I liked to use it as an extra stain remover
Directions: Mix all ingredients in a large heavy duty garbage bag. Be sure to securely close the bag and shake it back and forth until completely mixed. Scoop out into containers.
Notes: I like to add some Downy or Downy UnStopables to give my laundry more of girly scent. You could also add two containers of Downy UnStopables to your laundry soap mixture. HE washer friendly.
