You will need Borax, Washing Soda, Fels Naptha (or Zote, Ivory, or your favorite bar), and a cheese grater. (The oxy cleaner is optional)
First, you grate your soap. I only have a large hole grater, if you have a fine grater, you won't need to do the blending step. :-)
1 cup of Washing Soda (not baking soda)
Put half the soap in the processor or blender and the powder and blend.
1 cup Borax, and blend as above
I usually add 1 cup of oxy cleaner, but I ran out on the 1st batch I made today. (oops!) Mix, and you have your detergent!
Use 1 Tablespoon per load. I've been told that this IS safe for HE machines because it is a low (almost zero) suds soap. I also use about 1/4 cup of white vinegar in a "downy ball" for fabric softener. It leaves our clothes soft and virtually static free!
