- 1 cup Arm & Hammer (or other brand) Washing Soda --not baking soda
- 1 cup 20 Mule Team Borax (note the look of the box has changed since I took this photo)
- 2 cups (or approximately 1 bar) very finely grated Fels Naptha laundry bar -- some people use Zote brand soap
Update: I have been using this detergent for over a year and a half which tells you I'm very pleased with it. I use dryer sheets in the winter to cut down on static cling and to add fragrance. By the way, I cut them in half, and they work just as well.
I hope you'll consider giving this recipe a try. It's so easy to make a part of your routine, and you'll feel great when you get to walk past those expensive laundry detergents.
