Here are two options:
use 1 TBLSP for med loads, or double for large/heavy soil.
NOTE: No one else mentions this, but grating soap is DANGEROUS to your lungs. Even measuring this out will get soap up your nose. I now do option 2:
Equal parts Borax and Washing Soda. Use 1/3 cup in wash. I also add Nature Bright Laundry Brightner by Shaklee to soften and whiten/brighten. (2 Tbsp large load) You can order it at www.healthyhomeworld.com I realized the Washing soda works just as well without the soap, and it was easier than grating soap for an hour! It is the main ingredient in biodegradable laundry detergents, and has disinfecting qualities. My older son and husband have sensitive skin, so this seems to work the best for our money! (07/12/2006)
I was given this recipe for liquid laundry soap:
mix togther in a 2 gallon container, add hot water to fill the container & stir. You will have to shake it up before each use because it will settle.
Use 1/4 to 1/3 cup per load (08/02/2008)
