Laundry Time! I blogged about this recipe in 2011, so if you just want to make a small batch, check out the recipe here. I find it's much easier to just make a huge batch all at once, and then you don't have to measure anything.
Easy Laundry Soap
I use my food processor for shredding the Ivory soap--it goes very quickly! The finer the soap is shredded, the faster the mix will dissolve in the wash.
Shred all the soap and mix all three ingredients in a large dish pan or a bucket. I store the mix in gallon size zip bags to store it and then fill up a canister I keep next to the washing machine. You just need a 1 tablespoon size measuring spoon or scoop to keep with it. For lightly soiled loads, use 1 TBS. For heavily soiled loads use 2 TBS.
You can use regular baking soda if you can't find washing soda, but my Walmart started carrying the washing soda in the laundry aisle.
Have fun! This is so much easier than the liquid recipes and much easier to store.
Estimated cost: $1 for 32 tablespoons (and less trips to the store, because you won't run out as often, and no more giant detergent jugs going into the landfill)
