      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.
