How to make Dry laundry detergent, Homemade

It is time to make a new batch of laundry soap.  I have really liked my last batch and am excited to keep using more.  The amount of money saved on making your own is certainly worth it and it is easy!  Our family has had no sensitivities to it and it cleans great.

This is the liquid laundry soap recipe

Start with 1 cup Washing Soda and 1 cup Borax and finely  grate 1/3 a bar of soap or 1/2 cup soap flakes.  I decided to buy a box of soap flakes.  This way I avoided shaving the soap and it mixes better for a dry mixture.

and flip a few times while saying bibly bobbly boo....
It's like magic your done.  { bibly bobbly boo is optional though recommended.

2 tablespoons is all you need per load, increase as you feel. 
Now add a great label on a recycled bottle. Think about how much you saved.

To boost your detergent for a dirty load you can add baking soda. or Washing soda or Borax.  All are boosters and add extra cleaning help.  Vinegar is also great for reducing odor, {I have three boys!!}  and it also reduces static cling.
