Buy these ingredients at the dollar store. You will only need 2 tablespoons per load of laundry.



First grate your soap, then mix all ingredients together. I used two garbage bags doubled up. Tie well and shake all your ingredients around a few times. Put into a container with a lid.

You can add 1-2 containers of fabric softener crystals into the mix for a nice smell.

My first load was tried on my son's clothes. He works at a fast food resteraunt.


Not only are the clothes clean but no fast food smell. even his stinky socks are clean. Thank you so much for sharing

This is the same recipe that I use but add essential oils for the smell! Love this!
By the way, the washing soda is found in the same section as laundry soaps in larger stores. The washing soda box will have other ways to use it around your home.

I might have to try this. There are less ingredients to screw up my septic system.
