Powdered Laundry Soap

 
Last nigSONY DSCht my friend Brenda was blessed to share with some women last night ideas for saving money.  Sorry I was unable to make it as well.  I so would have loved to share with you as well.
 
 Some of the women were asking for a powdered version of homemade laundry soap.  So here it is ladies, from http://www.diynatural.com
 
Homemade powder laundry detergent recipe
This powdered detergent recipe requires just three simple ingredients and takes only a few minutes to make.

Detergent Recipe

Each batch yields approximately 32 ounces (between 32-64 loads based on how many Tbsp used per load).

Ingredients

1 bar (or 4.5 ounces) of shaved bar soap (a homemade laundry barDr. Bronner’sIvoryZOTE, or Fels-Naptha)

1 cup of borax

1 cup of washing soda

Directions

Thoroughly stir together for 5 minutes and enjoy the results! You can take this a step further and blend the mixture in a blender or food processor to create a powder that will dissolve easily even in cold water. (Just be sure to let the dust settle before removing the lid of your blender or food processor so you don’t inhale the fine particles.) Store in a sealed container with a small scoop.

To Use

Use 1 Tbsp per load (or 2-3 Tbsp for large or heavily soiled loads).
