4 cups of Arm and Hammer WASHING soda
4 cups of 20 Mule Team Borax
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.
