Homemade Laundry Detergent

I didn't realize until I looked back at a post by my friend Sarah that I have been using homemade laundry detergent for over six months. At first I thought it would be inconvenient but I suppose it has just become part of my routine to make a batch every couple of weeks. I'm borrowing a photo and recipe from Sarah's blog, be sure to check out some of her super cute crafts too.

1 Bar of Dr. Bronner’s Organic Bar Soap
1 Cup Borax
1 Cup Washing Soda
1 Cup Baking Soda
Grate the bar of soap using the finest side of the grater.  (You can also chop up the bar and drop it into a food processer.)  You’ll want very fine soap flakes especially if you use cold water for laundry, so it’s worth the time it will take.  Then simply add the other ingredients and mix until well combined.  Use one Tablespoon per load, two for a very large or heavily soiled load.  This recipe makes enough laundry soap to fill two pint sized canning jars.
