I love making things from scratch that can save me money and hopefully be better for us. Today I am making laundry detergent. I usually make it liquid, but, I thought I would try the powdered recipe and see how it works. I got the recipe from http://www.tipnut.com/ . I hope I like it, it sure is easier than making the liquid.
Powdered Laundry Detergent
2 cups finely grated soap (I use Zote, but you can use any mild soap)
1 cup washing soda
1 cup borax
Mix all together. Store in airtight container. Use 2 T per load.
