I have had this recipe for some time now. I actually got it online somewhere and just hung onto it knowing that I would make it at some point. She has one as well. Hers has scent added to it. I am not that cool.
My daughter and I finally made it the other day. It was really quite easy. You have to have 3 things to throw it all together. The hardest part was grating the bar soap. And that wasn't so much hard as it was messy. I probably could have used my food processer, but I was worried that everything after that would have a slightly soapy taste. Mmmmm..soapy cheese. Great for tacos.
1 C grated Fels Naptha bar soap 1/2 C Borax 1/2 C Washing soda
Mix well in a resealable container. Use 1T per load. 2 T for heavier soiled clothes.
I found all of the ingredients in my local grocery store. They were in the laundry soap aisle.
The soap seems to clean really well. It has a nice fresh, clean scent. However, if you have a super sniffer like myself, it may seem strong at first. It lessened tho, as I used it more. Well, I got acclimated to it, I should say.
Try it out. Let me know what you think. It is a huge money saver. And you know I love those!
