I have had several people ask for my laundry detergent recipe recently, so I am just going to link it here again! Happy Laundering!
Garden Now - Think Later!: Laundry Detergent Day
**note! Step 3 is missing the key ingredient water!! It should read "mix 6 cups of water with the soap to melt"
(for some reason, I can't edit the original post from so far back)
** To make powdered detergent, it's super easy! Mix 1 cup grated soap (Zote or similar), 1/2 cup Washing Soda, 1/2 cup Borax... I usually triple this recipe so it will last longer, and have been known to add 1/2 cup Oxyclean if I have it handy. The liquid recipe makes more, but when you need it quickly, nothing beats the powder since you can whip it up in less than 10 minutes and won't be tempted to buy it!
