Laundry Powder

I recently tried a different laundry detergent recipe. The recipe is from and it was recommended by my friend Lisa. It is very similar to the other recipe that I have been using for over a year. The largest difference is that it calls for Dr. Bonners Castile soap (I used peppermint) in place of the Fels Naptha. The other difference is that it is a powder instead of a liquid which makes it easier to make!

Grate the soap. This is my favorite part!

I LOVE this puffy soap fluff! Peppermint delight.

Thoroughly mix the borax, washing soda, baking soda, and grated castile soap. Use 1/8 cup per load of laundry! So easy.
