Homemade laundry detergent

Bill has freakishly sensitive skin. Recently the dye and scent free soap we use has begun breaking him out. So after moderately careful consideration I we made the switch to homemade. This is so much cheaper than the expensive stuff I used to buy. And so much better for us.

I have three goals for the end of the year:
★Cut out most of our chemicals
★Cut almost all of our paper products
★Make an angel food cake from scratch

Homemade laundry soap
72 oz box borax
3.9 lb box washing soda
4 lb box baking soda
2 bars fels naptha

1. I used an old food processor to grind up my soap, but you can alaways grate by hand.
2. Dump all ingredients into a pail or bucket and mix together.
3. Use 1T for normal loads and 2T for dirtier loads.
