Laundry Soap


1 box of Super Washing Soda (3 lbs 7 oz)

1 box of Borax (4 lbs 12 oz)

1 box of Pure Baking Soda (4 lbs)

3 bars of Fels-Naptha (5.5 oz) or you could also use Ivory soap

1 container of Oxy-Clean

Optional:  Purex Crystals (28 oz) or you could use Downy unstoppables


1.  Grate the Fels-Naptha Bar.  You can use a cheese grater to do this, but I used my food processor.  Using my food processor I first grated the bar like cheese and then use the regular blade to grate it down fine.  You could use Ivory soap (just microwave it and it will foam where you can just crush it into a fine grade).

2.  Using a plastic tote bin, put a black garbage bag inside of it.  Pour each of the ingredient in.  Mix well.

3.  Place into your container of choice.

4.  You only need to use 1-2 Tbsp. per load.  It is safe for high efficiency washing machines.

Yield: 18 lbs. of detergent
