I've been researching it and saw people making their own powdered laundry detergent. Mostly because they want to cut down the chemicals, but I did a search on washing soda and borax- 2 most common ingredients. Found the chemical names and did a search washing soda is Sodium Carbonate, and borax is Sodium Borate. The company I found selling them is a chemitry supply company, and both have material safety data sheets (MSDS) with them, so they really are chemicals. They both say to flush eyes if you get it in your eyes, don't get on clothing, don't breathe in the dust, etc. Not really a question I guess, but thought you should be aware of this, if you're interested at all. Here is the borax MSDS link: http://www.cqconcepts.com/chem_sodiumborate.php and here is the link for the washing soda MSDS: http://www.cqconcepts.com/inc/inc_print_sodiumcarbonate.html Seems to be no better than buying laundry detergent at the store, I'm sure those are the top 2 ingredients for commercial detergents as well.

Two chemicals seems a lot better than the 5 or 6 chemical plus perfume and other additive ingredients in store bought detergent. Besides everyone that I know makes their own laundry detergent to save money.
