I am now on my second batch of laundry detergent. I have never thought powdered detergent would be effective. But this stuff IS. I found the recipe here. I have a very messy husband who stains every shirt he wears daily, so I require something powerful. Honestly, I don’t know why he owns anything but black t-shirts.
The hardest part of this recipe is shredding the Fels Naptha soap. You need 1 bar of Fels Naptha. You may actually get carpal tunnel shredding this thing. I shred mine very fine; almost like a dust consistency.
Then you stir in 1 cup of Borax and 1 cup of Washing Soda. Stir it really well. And that’s it! Easy Peasey! I store mine in a glass jar with a clamp locking lid. I shake it a bit every once in a while to ensure it is mixed thoroughly. When it’s laundry day, all you need is one tablespoon per load. This stuff works amazingly!
