Borax Free Laundry Soap
After trying out several different laundry soap recipes I think I have finally found one that works for me. I have a front load HE washer and this recipe leaves the clothes clean and beautiful. Note: I do still pretreat the heavily soiled clothes. For fabric softener I use about a 1/4 cup of vinegar with each load.
1 Cup Washing Soda
1/2 Cup Oxi-Clean
1/2 Cup Coarse Sea Salt
1/4 C Citric Acid
.5-.7 oz Soap Nuts
Measure and grind the Soap Nuts in the blender
*I use my Blendtec and it grinds them up really well.
*I read that you can also blend the Washing Soda and Nuts together.
Measure and add remaining ingredients together and stir.
I usually throw in a silica gel packet into the jar to keep the laundry soap from clumping.
1 Tablespoon for HE washers - for heavily soiled loads I may add a little extra
That's it!! Enjoy...
