Home Made Laundry Detergent

Ingredients in laundry detergent + shaved soap bar
Today I made home made laundry detergent as part of my mission...read about it here.
I was going to make the liquid version, but I need to acquire a 5 gallon bucket with a lid first.  So I made the powder version instead.  I followed the recipe from here.. Earth Easy (great site)

1/2c Borax
1/2c.Super Washing Soda
1 shaved bar of soap, I used a homemade bar I had
(Ivory or Fels Naptha soap is suggested),
I put all ingredients in a cleaned out coffee can
Use 3 Tablespoons per load

So the clothes...came out clean!  I put them on the clothes my recycled clothes line, just in time for a thunder storm to add some natural fabric softener!

I LOVE knowing what is really in my laundry detergent that I clean my families clothes in.
I LOVE no plastic bottle to recycle.
I love knowing that the ingredients are safe for the Earth!
