Homemade laudry detergent

Although I'm sure this isn't new, thanks to my friend Chris for sharing this today.

1 cup borax, 1 cup washing soda, 1/4 cup baking soda, 2 bars ivory soap. Use a cheese shredder for the bars of soap. Mix it all up and use 1-2 tablespoons per load depending on how dirty. You can add essential oils for fragrance if you like and if your water isn't great you can add a little oxy clean to the mixture as well. We like the ivory smell. You can use other soaps too. But ivory is cheap. Btw all this stuff is at Walmart and dollar stores in big boxes. I usually double the recipe and store it in a plastic container. It's very concentrated so try 1 tbs first before using 2 .
