Save Money with Homemade Laundry Soap

A lot of people I know might balk at the idea of making your own laundry detergent, but if you hang out on Pinterest as much as I do, you'll have noticed that there are a lot of people who do this. But it is surprisingly easy and will save you money.

Here is my recipe for laundry soap:

Dry Laundry Soap Recipe
2 cups Arm and Hammer washing soda
2 cups 2 Mule Team Borax
1 cup baking soda
1 bar of Fels-Naptha, Zote, or Ivory soap, finely grated with a cheese grater
Mix together and store in a Ziploc bag or sealed container of your choice.  Keep in a cool, dry place. Use 1-2 tablespoons per load of laundry.  Use an additional tablespoon for larger loads or heavily soiled clothing.
