Edited to add: I use this soap in my HE (high efficiency) washer and have had no problems at all so far. I've also noticed that the machine does not ask to be cleaned as often as it used to.A friend of mine from work made her own laundry soap and shared some of it with me and I LOVE IT! I loved it so much I made more and I will continue to make more in the future. It's going to save us lots of money too! My friend got her recipe HERE.
Here's what you will need to make a very large amount of soap:
1 Large container with lid (ours is 24 qts)
1 Grater with a small grating area
1 (4 lb 12 oz) Box of Borax - $3.38
1 (3 lb 7 oz) Box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda - $3.24
1 (3 lb) Container of OxyClean - $7.52
2 (14.1 oz) Bars of Fels Naptha Soap (You can also use Zote Soap) - $.97 each
1 (4 lb) Box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda - $2.66
1 large or 2 small Bottle of Purex Crystals Fabric Softener - $8.96 (large size)
It doesn't have to be done all at once. It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
