How to make homemade laundry detergent.  Come watch this great video and see how easy and economical it is.  Here is the recipe:

Home-Made Laundry Detergent

Ingredients:

1 Fels Naptha soap bar, grated   <—I used a Zote soap bar this time
1 cup washing soda
1/2 cup borax

Instructions:

Grate the soap bar into a large saucepan. Cover with hot water. Cook over medium heat until the soap completely dissolves.
Put washing soda and borax in a 5-gallon bucket (I bought a painter’s bucket and lid at Home Depot). Pour in the hot, melted soap mixture. Stir well, until all the powder is dissolved. Fill the bucket to the top with more hot tap water. Stir, cover securely, and let set overnight. The next morning, stir the mixture. Mix equal amounts of soap concentrate and water in a smaller laundry-detergent dispenser or container. Shake before using.
For top-loading machines: Use 1 cup of the soap mixture per load.
For front-loading machines: Use 1/2 cup per load.
Happy Washing!!!
