12 cups Borax
8 cups Baking Soda
8 cups Washing Soda
8 cups Bar soap (grated)
Mix all ingredients well and store in a sealed tub.
Use 1/8 cup of powder per full load.
This is the recipe that we use at the Reid house. Now the tip to saving money with this is to use the 1/8 cup. It works and gets a load clean. Now your clothes will not smell! For example if you are used to using Tide do not expect that smell. You will have a slight scent of Ivory but your clothes will be clean and stains removed the same as any soap.
This is how we clean our clothes. Now a few weeks ago Tide was on sale at Homeland and I had some coupons so I was able to stock up on some Tide super cheap. So what I do is add a tiny bit of Tide to my wash just for the scent and still use my normal recipe that I made.
