Homemade washing powders

O.K. I was really skeptical about this one! I just got one of the ingredients a week, then when I had them all I mixed it up. It smells so good and cleans as good as any I have used.

Homemade Laundry Detergent Recipe.

I found all these ingredients at my local Wal Mart on the detergent aisle. The prices is what they were at my Wal Mart.

1 (4lb. 12oz.)- Box of 20 Muleteam Borax...$3.97

1 (3lb. 7oz.)- Box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda....$3.97 (I thik I forgot to write that one down.)

1 (3lb.)- Container of OxyClean...$7.52 

2 (14.1 oz.)-bars of either Zoat or Fels Naptha...$.97

1 (4lb.)-box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda....$2.24.

1-2 (55oz.) Bottles of Purex Crystals  Fabric Softner....scent of your choice....$4.76

1 large dishpan or bucket for mixing. At least an 18qt. size.

(1.)  You can grate the soap or microwave and crumble. I chose to microwave. Cut up bar in 5 pieces. Put on a microwaveable safe plate and microwave for 1.45 minutes.

(2.)  Mix all ingredients up, mix really well. Save the empty to store the detergent in.

(3.) If some of the soap is hard to crumble put those pieces back in for 1 min.

For normal loads use only 2 Tablespoons. For super dirty/greasy loads use 4 Tablespoons.

Finally a tip that works

Ok ladies, lets see the hands. How many are guilty of trying things they see on Facebook? 
I am the worst, sometimes it's a flop sometimes not. This one was a keeper...

The next time you clean your fridge line the shelves with Glad Press and Seal. Now when they get dirty, I just peel it off and put on a new one. Nomore cleaning out the fridge! There will be some light wipoing down on the sides but no more pulling out shelves!
