I was talking about it with a good friend yesterday and she wanted the recipe so I told her I would post it here.
So, here's the recipe we use:
1 cup of Borax
1 cup of Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
2 cups of shredded Irish Spring bar soap
Make sure you shake everything until well combined (We keep ours in an air tight plastic bottle.)
Use 2-3 Tablespoons per wash load (We use 3 Tablespoons per load. We use a small container as our scooper, it's exactly 3 Tablespoons - which makes it a lot easier.)
You can also double up the recipe like we do so you do not have to make it as often.
Try it and see how you like it! Let me know what you think.
Note: We previously made some liquid laundry detergent but have found that it was too messy and bulky for our family. Therefore we have opted to stick with powdered laundry detergent.
