  • 1 bar laundry soap - I use Fels Naptha
    1/2 cup washing soda
    1/4 cup borax

    Grate bar of soap and melt in 4 cups of water over medium heat, stirring until completely melted. Stir borax and washing soda into hot water in 5 gallon bucket. Add melted soap and stir. Fill bucket with hot water and stir. Lid and let gel 24 hours. To use, fill old container half full with detergent, half full with water. Shake to mix prior to use. Use 1/4 cup for front loader, 5/8 cup for top loader.
