I started last year with this recipe, and followed it to a T. We used it and really liked it. We were really close to running out again, so on this, my usual day off, I made another batch. Not as big as the last time, when I used THIS recipe, which involves dumping whole boxes into a tote or bucket, but for now, this worked well.
Now, MY version of this recipe.
- 2 Bars Ivory Soap
- 2 Cups Borax
- 2 Cups Washing Soda
- 2/3 Cup Downey Unstoppables (I like the Blue scent)
- 1 Cup Baking Soda
Shred the soap. I use the food processor with the shredder attachment, but then also the S blade to chop them into smaller bits.
Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir well.
Place the mixture into a screwtop jar (I use an old gallon pickle jar, but feel free to use something pretty).
Use 2 T of detergent per load. In my initial load, I used OxyClean instead of baking soda, and have continued to use one level scoop per load.
That's it. Super easy, am I right?
