Still Making Home-Made Laundry Soap

I posted about our home-made laundry soap a little over a year ago.  It really does work well and saves you lots of money.  I did notice though that some of my whites were becoming a bit dingy so I did add some Oxyclean into the mix.  Now that we know we like it, we make a huge batch at once.  It should last us at least 6 months.  Here is the recipe:

1 Box Mule Team Borax (4lb 12oz box)
1 Box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (3lb box)
1 Box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda (4 lb box)
1 Container Oxyclean (1.3lb)
4 bars of Ivory Soap (Or Fels Naptha or any soap you prefer)

It is really easy to make the soap and not all that messy.  All you do is dump the box ingredients into your storage container.

Grate the bar soap in the food processor.

Then just mix it up.  Look at all that soap!  This means I won't have to make laundry soap for half a year!  Better yet I won't have to buy it.  I save so much money with very little time, effort or mess.  I love it!

Good idea to add the oxy-clean - might have to try that. Does this recipe work well for a front-load/high efficiency washer?

I don't personally have one, but I hear it does work well with the front-load/high efficiency washers too!
