Homemade Laundry Detergent

Homemade Laundry Detergent

Ingredients:
water
1/3 bar Fels Naptha (shaved with cheese grater)
1/2 cup Borax
1/2 cup Washing Soda (NOT baking soda-This can be found in the section with laundry detergent)
At least a 2 gallon bucket

Put the soap shavings in a pot with 6 cups of water.  Heat this until the soap dissolves. Remove the pot from heat.  Pour 4 cups of hot water into your bucket.  Add the soap mixture and stir.  Then add 1 gallon plus 6 cups more water into the bucket.  Let this mixture sit for 24 hours.  It will form into a watery gel mixture. Use 1/2 cup per load of laundry.
