Measuring Homemade Laundry Soap?

A friend gave me a recipe for homemade laundry soap. It is made with 6 cups of borax, 4 cups of baking soda, 4 cups of washing soda, and 4 cups of graded bar soap.


My problem is it doesn't tell how much to use in each load of laundry? Does anyone know this recipe and how much to use? I would be very thankful for the answer!

I also use homeade laundry detergent but I always use the liquid version. However, I have read in a few places that those who use powdered only use 1-2 Tbs. per load and they say their clothes come out clean.

Experiment a bit and see what works for you. Hope this helps!

I make liquid laundry detergent. How much to use? I found a lot depends on the type of water u have in your area. For instance, I have hard water.


So I have to use twice the amount or so. If u have soft water, Then that would probably take a normal amount.
