I made homemade laundry soap again.

Yup, you read that right.  About 10 years ago or so my sister in law (thanks Molly!) introduced me to this recipe for laundry soap.  Now I couldn't find my scribbled note from back in the day but thanks to the internet I was able to recreate it.  It actually is super easy to make although the one thing that was hard to find was the Washing Soda which I found at Food Maxx.  The rest I found at Safeway.  It really is cheaper than regular off the shelf soap and I know what goes in it and most importantly the clothes come out clean.  Oh and I didn't do the entire recipe I did a quarter of it but it made a lot.  Here it is:

Laundry Soap Recipe

12 cups Borax
8 cups washing soda
8 cups baking soda
8 cups grated bar soap - I used unscented glycerin

Mix all ingredients and store in a tub.  Use 1/8 cup per load.

You can add essential oil for fragrance if you like.
