I make the liquid soap, can you explain the procedure for the
powdered? I am very interested in trying it that way.

> you use 1/2 c of borax; & 1/2 c of washing soda; 1 grated bar of
fels naptha equals 2 1/2 cups; you use 1 cup for the powdered recipe
that I make; you use 1 T for reqular loads, & 2 T for heavily soiled;
doesn’t suds much nor will any homemade laundry detergent cuz it is
chemicals which are harmful which make store bought suds; & they are
full of fillers usually ground up dried corn cobs & other things to
make it APPEAR that you get far more than you do & that is the reason
you use so much more when using bought laundry soap; so 1 bar of Fels
naptha made using my recipe will last me 6 months; & I still have
lots of washing soda & borax to use in cleaning supplies.

> Am I the only person that is finding it more expensive to make my
own laundry detergent. There are a couple of brands of laundry
detergent at Walmart that only end up costing only 4 cent per
ounce. The cheapest Washing Soda I can find is9 cent per ounce and
Borax is 3 cent per ounce which makes a final product of 6 cent per
ounce ,but wait, we have not added the bar soap yet.That will
increase the cost srtill more.

than name brand?
