I think I have posted about this laundry soap recipe before, but I was making a new batch and decided to put it out here in blog land one more time. Thanks to nurse and friend extraordinaire, Wendy Linton, who first gave me this recipe. I have been using it for 2 years and still love it. So here goes.
You will need:
1 cup of borax
1 cup of washing soda
1/2 cup of grated Ivory soap
1/2 cup of grated Zote soap (found on the laundry aisle in store)
Stir all together and then process in blender or food processor just to get a finer powder and better combined mixture. Use 2 T per load and that's it! I did the calculations, and it only costs 6 cents per load. Here are a few pictures for show and tell:
Here's how all the packages look, except for ivory soap, but I think you know what that looks like :)
Grating up the Zote soap:
Find some pretty jars for storage and start doing laundry!
Here is the white hoodie that was involved in the bike accident that I mentioned in a previous post:
I did use a spot remover that you spray on before putting it in the laundry, but it came out snowy white with my homemade detergent. I was very impressed that all the mud was removed. I don't have an after picture right now, but you can take my word for it. It is so white and clean, and never going to go on a bike ride again!!!!!!
