I had been using the “melt it in water to make a gel” recipe, but even though it’s just soap, it was still a messy job to prepare. This recipe is a “dry” recipe.
2 cups grated laundry soap (I used 1 cup of Sunlight soap and 1 cup of Pure Soap’s stain removing laundry bar)
1 cup washing soda
1 cup borax
1 cup baking soda
15 drop essential oil (optional. The best choice would be lemon since it has extra anti-bacterial properties)
Use 1/4 cup of mixture per average load.
