Homemade Laundry Soap

Laundry soap:
2 cups of grated Ivory soap
In a large container (I use an old, clean gallon ice cream bucket w/lid) combine and mix the washing soda and borax.  Add the grated soap.  Use your hands to mix and break up the soap shavings in the borax/soda mixture.  Mix well.  Cover with lid.  Use 1/3 powdered laundry soap per load of laundry.  Makes about one gallon of laundry soap.
Don’t have a washing machine?  Washing your laundry by hand is not as hard as you might think!  With a few simple household items you can get the job done.
