Make your own powdered laundry detergent

With prices increasing daily, it's good to know how to make some of your own household cleansers. This powdered laundry detergent works quite well for us:

Powdered Detergent

2 cups finely grated Fels Naptha soap
1 cup Arm & Hammer Washing soda (NOT baking soda)
1 cup Borax

1. Mix well and store in an airtight plastic container.

2. Use 2 tablespoons per full load.

You may not see as many suds as you're used to but it will clean just as well. If you want to, you can add a drop of essential oil to the water as your washing machine is filling up. I like lavender the best.
