Dry Detergent for Clothes

Powdered Detergent

4 lb box Borax

3 lb box Washing Soda

4 lb box baking soda
3 lb container OxyClean (optional….but I have messy toddlers)

2 bars Fels Naptha soap (Dove is another soap I use

1.Grate bars of soap using a fine grater.  I use rubber gloves so that I don’t grate my fingers as well.I don’t grate my fingers as well.

2. In a large 5 gallon bucket, layer all ingredients and mix.  I put the lid on and rolled the bucket around and then used my rubber gloved hands to mix this all up.  It was a workout.

3. Use 2 Tbsp per load.  Sprinkle directly in drum on top of clothes.

*This works great in top loading, front loading, regular, and HE machines.

Inshaallah I will post a recipe for the liquid kind soon
