Homemade Laundry Detergent

Homemade Laundry Detergent
One of the best recipes I have ever made is homemade laundry detergent. Not only does this save you lots of money, it is made with all natural products that have been around for over 100 years. This also is a very good "Green" way to go, since you are not contributing to the tons of plastics laundry bottles that get tossed out into the environment every day.  It is very easy to make, my little children even love to make it, especially since the Zote soap is a beautiful pink color.

1 1/2 cups of Borax
1 1/2 cups Super Washing Soda
1 Bar of Zote Soap

  1. Grate the bar of Zote soap on a hand grater
  2. In a blender or food processor, add the grated soap and mix until the soap is fine in texture.
  3. Homemade Laundry Detergent
  4. Add the Borax and Super Washing Soda. Mix well.
I only use a small scoop of this per load of laundry. Remember it doesn't have to be sudsy to get your clothes clean.
I purchase the Zote bars at K-mart.

You have been king of my glory,
Won't you be my prince of peace..."
