homemade laundry soap

I posted this morning about my homemade laundry soap and since their were so many questions I thought I would take a little time to share my recipe – it is SO simple and money-saving!!

Basically it’s:
2 cups Arm and Hammer Laundry Soap
2 cups Borax
1 grated bar of soap (I like to use Whole Foods Organic Lavender Soap)
In the image above you’ll see my glass jar and it has a metal screw top, it’s from the Container Store

Use 2 Tbsp each load

And that’s it! Grating the soap is definitely my least favorite part, but it’s definitely worth all the money I save. In other recipes I’ve seen Ivory or Fels-Naptha used but I use the soap that I do so that it’s safe for cloth-diaper washing :)
