Homemade Laundry Detergent

76oz Borax
4 lbs Arm and Hammer baking soda
55oz Arm and Hammer super washing soda
3 bars Fels-Naptha (or other bar washing soap)
4 lbs Oxy Clean
1 container Downy Unstoppables scent booster

Grate the Fels-Naptha using a cheese grater.

Mix all ingredients together!

NOTES: You can find all of these items in the laundry section of most grocery stores. I’ve heard that you can also find a generic version of Oxy Clean, but I haven’t seen one yet. I don’t know if I will use the Downy Unstoppables the next time I make this, as the bar soap has a nice enough scent to it. I put it in a five-gallon bucket with a lid and use about 1/8 of a cup for regular loads of laundry.
