homemade laundry soap (that works GREAT!!)

its no secret, i get excited at the possibility of saving money for our little family! So, when i found a recipe for homemade laundry soap, i thought i'd give it a try. Well, that was over a month ago, and i LOVE it. Not only is it WAYYYYY cheaper, it also cleans better, even ryan's SMELLY basketball shirts! If you'd like to give it a go, here is the recipe:

3 cups (2 bars) Fels Naptha or Zote Soap, grated (I use lever 2000)
1 1/2 Cup 20 Mule Team Borax (you can buy this at walmart)
1 1/2 Cup Arm and Hammer Washing Soda (you can only buy this at cub foods!)

Mix ingredients together, then put in the blender to get to a powdered substance.

USE: Use one tablespoon per load for normal sized loads with normal dirt. This will wash about 90 loads. Be sure to store this marked and covered tightly.
