Recipe by dougwood123

Powdered laundry detergent. I like to use a full bar of soap when making laundry detergent so the amount of ingredients is based off of that.

Absolutely great! I had so much fun making the soap! Very economical. Finally found out you can get washing soda at an Ace Hardware Store. I large grated my soap and then put it into a small food processor I have. That got the soap nice and manageable. Thanks so much for the recipe!
