  1. Hey Katie! I have a recipe for homemade laundry detergent. You need a 5 gallon plastic bucket (from WalMart or Home Depot), a bar of Fels-Naptha soap, 1 cup of Arm and Hammer washing soda, and 1/2cup of borax. Grate the bar of soap and mix with about 4 cups of water in a saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat melting all of the soap. In the bucket place the washing soda and the borax. Pour the melted soap mixture into the bucket. Make sure to dissolve all of the powder. Fill the bucket up the rest of the way with hot tap water. Cover and allow to cool overnight (mixture will gel). Take an old clean plastic laundry detergent container and fill half full with the soap. Then, fill container up rest of way with water. Before each use, be sure to shake and mix. For top loaders use 1cup and for front loaders use 1/3cup. Cost to make about $8. The 5 gallon bucket will last a normal size family multiple months.
