    Grate 1/3 of a large bar (or half a bar) of cheap bath soap (ivory, jergens, rosa venus are some of the ones I’ve used).
    Dissolve grated soap in 4 cups of water on LOW.
    After dissolving, stir into a large bucket with
    1/2 cup borax
    1/2 cup washing soda (NOT baking soda!)
    3 gallons of water
    Stir until it starts to thicken

    Cover tight and let sit for 24 hours before using.

    Stir before using.

    use 1/4 to 1/3 cup per load

    Cost per load: 2 to 3 cents (compared to to almost 30 cents per load of commercial detergents)

    Just a note to confirm that this combination does work. I have been using a very similar recipe for almost a year now with excellent results.
