Laundry Detergent!

Today I'm making laundry detergent....
1 bar soap
1 cup washing soda (in the laundry detergent aisle/Arm & Hammer)
1/2 cup borax (not necessary but helps in the cleaning)
5 gallon bucket
3 gallons of water
big spoon, measuring cup
1. Boil 4 cups of water in a pan...while this is heating, shave your soap bar. Dissolve in the boiling water.
2. Add three gallons of hot water into your five gallon bucket.....mix in your hot soapy water from step 1....add cup of washing soda....stir....add half cup borax and stir again.
3. Let sit for 24 hours.
4. After the 24 hours you'll have a slimy gel and it's ready to use. 1 cup per load! Out of the three gallons you'll get approx. 48 loads of laundry!
This will save you about $70 a year! Which equals approximately two/three skeins of sock yarn! LOL
