Homemade Powder Laundry Soap:
1 Bar grated soap Fels Naptha or Ivory. Ivory is much easier to find, but I prefer Fels Naptha
1 cup of Borax
1 cup of Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
Stir the ingredients together (after grating the soap)
Use 2 TBS per load of laundry. This will work well in HE front loader washers it is a low-suds formula. (no suds at all)
I have been using this for years and it works great !
