2 parts Borax
1 part Baking Soda
1 part Fels Naptha Laundry Bar Soap (grated)
To use: Add 1-2 tablespoons per load. This mixture is safe for front loading washers.
Extras to add/try:
- 1 part oxygen bleach (Oxyclean)
- Essential oils for scent
- Add vinegar to the rinse cycle (of the fabric softener compartment) to soften and disinfect
- Make this into homemade detergent tablets! Using a spray bottle, spray water onto the powered mixture and mix until you can compact it. You can shape the tablets by hand or put them in silicone ice cube trays to dry. Once dry, they will harden and retain their shape. Add one tablet per wash.
