I go to Winn-Dixie and buy a box of 20-Mule-Team Borax washing powder and a box or Arm and Hammer washing powder. Next I go to Save A Lot and buy a bar of Zote bathing soap. Use 8 cups of each powder and grate-up the bar of soap, like cheese.
Next you mix it all in your food processor or blender in batches. Store in 2 plastic coffee containers with lids on top. Use 4 Tbsp. per load of laundry.
Softens, cleans, child safe, septic safe, and you can hang clothes outside all day and they smell so fresh that you want to eat them. Most of Lake City uses this tip and will never go back to other laundry detergents. Enjoy and save lots of money.

We have not used legitimate, commercially made laundry detergent in our house for over 3 years. We use a Miracle II Laundry Ball, about 1/2 Cup of vinegar and 1/2 Cup of Arm and Hammer washing soda. This combination works wonders at getting clean, fresh-smalling laundry that has not been exposed to petro-chemicals. I have multiple chemical sensitivities and skin problems and this works well for me to avoid problems there. It is also very cheap. For some reason, the vinegar does not work well on dark colors and makes them smell weird, so we don't use the vinegar on dark colored laundry.
