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.
