Put all ingredients into a large pot and bring it to a boil.

Use a slotted spoon to mash the berries while they are cooking.

Remove lid and simmer for 30 more minutes – stir once in awhile.

3 lb box Washing Soda

4 lb box baking soda

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.
