I attempted to make my first batch of laundry soap last week. Why, you say??? To save money, why else? So far I am pleased with the laundry soap, not so much with the dishwasher soap.
Grate one bar of soap (your choice) many recommend Ivory.
Mix 1 cup Borax w/ 1 cup of Washing Soda.
Add grated soap.
Use 2 Tablespoons per load.
* I had a hard time finding the Washing Soda, finally found it at Homeland.
