This post is for Diary of A School Nurse who has asked me if I had a recipe for homemade laundry soap :) I have posted here about my semi homemade laundry soap . I have recently tried out another new recipe for the powdered version. So far I like it and it works well. It also uses the same ingredients that I use if I make the liquid/gel version. I thought I would share the recipe. Also you can now find all the items to make this in the laundry isle of my Walmart. Although I am still unsure if that is the cheapest place to get the Washing Soda or not. I need to check into that!
1 box - Arm and Hammer Washing Soda
1 box - Borax
4 bars - Fels Naptha
4 cups - Oxyclean type product. I use the Sun version of this.
I cut the Fels Napth bars into chunks and then run them threw my food processor. I then mix all these items together in a big plastic laundry soap box I saved from forever ago. When I make the liquid/gel version of laundry soap this is what I make it into and store it in also. I then put some of the powdered version in a glass jar on my dryer. I have a old tablespoon scoop I use in the jar. Many people say you can use 1 TBSP per load but I usually use 2. I don't know why but that just seem to work for me :)
I have also been asked about my dryer sheets which I shared about here. I am on my third round of using this idea and they seem to work great. The last old napkin I soaked in a fabric softener sample I had received in the mail. So this batch of "dryer sheets" were actually free :)
