It's crazy simple (only 3 ingredients!) and works like a charm.
- 1 cup borax (naturally-occurring mineral; cleaning agent)
What to do:
Grate soap bar using your cheese grater. Don't worry about getting soap on your grater - it's soap and will clean your grater before washing off. Measure and mix three ingredients together in a jar. So fast and simple!
Shake before use to make sure all ingredients are mixed.
- 1 Tbsp for small load
- 2 Tbsp for large load
Honestly, you don't need more! Laundry detergent companies want us to use more so that we'll buy more!
We're several loads in, and I'm loving it! Who doesn't love to save $$ and feel good knowing you made something yourself!
Optional: fabric softener
Throw in a cup of vinegar into the rinse cycle.. I have yet to try this, but apparently it does not leave a vinegar smell on clothes.
