      This is the laundry soap I have been making and using since the beginning of the year. It is so cheap and works better than the Tide or Cheer I have been buying for years. I only use TWO TABLESPOONS per large load as my recipe called for. Does a great job, smells so fresh and clean! Use the Fels-Naptha soap bar and grate is as finely as you can. Put the Borax and Washing Soda in your food processor, process for a few seconds then add the grated bar soap. Process for about a minute or so...perfect! I will never use store bought detergent again.
