Laundry Soap

Laundry Soap

After trying countless name brands of both liquid and powdered laundry soaps, I found that this powdered laundry soap works the best to deodorize clothes. Especially for those who perspire a lot!

1   Fels-Naptha bar soap or Castile
1   Cup - Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda - sodium carbonate
½  Cup Borax

Grate soap and process in a food processor or grind in coffee grinder until powdered. 
Use a cheese grater to grate the bar and then grind in a coffee grinder taking care not to grind too long or you will have a gooey mess!

Mix all ingredients. Store in air tight container. Shake before using.
An empty plastic coffee container really keeps it airtight.

For light load, use 1 Tablespoon. For heavy or heavily soiled load, use 2 Tablespoons. 

Yields: 3 Cups detergent. (Approx. 40 loads)

  1. I don't think Fels Naptha is actually vegan. Check the ingredients.
