Making Homemade Laundry Soap

Ok I know what you are thinking--WHY? Once you use it you
will know why. I do not pretreat my clothes. The clothes come out softer. The colors stay true. The cost is about $ .15 per load (WOW). My daughter is sensitive to many soap products and it does not bother her skin. It does not sud--so it is good for HE machines. It is good for the enviroment. It smells yummy and it looks so darn cute in my laundry room!!! The recipe is:

Large Batch (Powder Form)
6 bars Fels-Naptha (shredded)
3 cups Washing Soda (Arm and Hammer--NOT BAKING SODA)
3 cups Borax
Mix in a large bowl. Store in a covered container.

Small Batch (Powder Form)
1 bar Fels-Naptha (shredded)
1/2 cup Washing Soda
1/2 cup Borax.
Mix in a bowl. Store in a covered container.

There is a liquid form also, the recipe can be found on You can also buy all of the products. You should be able to find Washing soda and Borax at your local Wal-Mart. The Fels-Naptha is the one item that might be hard to find (you can buy it at this site as well--already shredded).
