You will need 3 simple Ingredients:
1 Cup of Washing Soda
1 Bar of Laundry Soap
1 Cup of Borax
Then simply shred the bar of soap...for convience, M uses this...
And then it should look something like this...sorta like shredded cheese (mold!)
Then you just put all three ingredients together and blend them or use the food processor...
Then you have powdered Laundry Detergent....
Simply use 2-3 Tablespoons per load.**
**It helps if you run the water without clothes in the washer and add the soap so it will disintegrate a bit, THEN add the clothes.
And now you can tell the Mr. that you just saved your family hundreds of dollars for the year...surely, he will be excited about that!!
