Homemade Laundry Soap

Here's another recipe from the same blog http://beingcreativetokeepmysanity.blogspot.com/2010/11/homemade-laundry-soap.html?m=0 
but it is Laundry soap!!!
I HATE spending money on laundry soap so I am excited to try this!

Here is the jist on this one:
Ingredients for Homemade Laundry Soap:
You should be able to find all of these items at your grocery store.

1 4 lb box Borax

1 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
1 4lb box Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
3 bars of Fels-naptha soap
2 small containers of oxyclean or store brand oxyclean
this is optional, I added it into mine because I have pretty messy kids and the cleaner the better
(you can also use pink Zote soap found at Home Depot instead of Fels-naptha.)

Start out by grating your Fels-naptha soap just like cheese. You can use a food processor or just use your hand held grater, what ever you have.

Toss all ingredients in a 5 gallon bucket lined with a garbage bag. This part makes your whole house smell great. Once everything is mixed store soap however you like.

I chose a jar that I keep above my washing machine, I also got a little scoop to keep inside. Wasn't that easy? Sure was! Enjoy your soap. Use 1-2  Tbsp per load to do the job!
