4lb. 12oz. Borax
3lb. 7oz. Washing soda
2 bars of Zone soap OR Fels-Naptha soap
4lb. Baking Soda
28oz. if Purex Crystals
Take your 2 bars of soap and grate it up, yes this will take a bit of time, but it will be worth it. If you get tired stop, and have a cup of tea.
Now take a 5 gallon bucket that is empty. Start pouring in your box of Borax, Washing Soda, Oxyclean, Baking Soda, grated up soap, and Purex Crystals. I just take my hand and mix it all up-really well.
You are all done, and have laundry detergent for the year.
I fill up the empty Oxyclean container with soap, and that is what sits right by the Washer. I take the rest and put it in a large tupperware container. I use 1 T for most of my clothes washing, but up to 4T for farm clothes, rugs, and really dirty stuff. Happy clothes washing..........
