Naturally Clean

I make my own allergy-free, dye-free, crazy-words-I-can't-pronouce-free clothing detergent.  It's pretty cheap and easy to make.  It is a great deodorizer for sports clothes and awesome at getting out stains in clothing, but remember to use a scrub brush.   I even got out the dirty salt stains on ski coats.  If you live in a cold climate, you know that gray dinge jackets accumulate regardless of how often you wash it.  Yep, scrub brush and my natural detergent.  You can find everything at a grocery store in the laundry aisle.

4 c. Borax powder
4 c. Washing Soda
2 bars of grated Fels Naptha soap or Zote soap (find in Mexican grocery stores)

Mix all ingredients together. I put it all in a food processor and process it until it is fine.  2 TBL per load is all you need and it's safe for high efficiency units also.

Thanks Beck! I just finished brewing my all-purpose cleaner and was looking for a laundry soap recipe.
