Gentle Fabric Soap
1 bar Ivory soap – grated
4 cups boiling water
1/2 cup borax
Combine soap and borax in a large pan and pour the boiling water over the mixture, stirring until soap is dissolved. Cool, then store in a plastic squeeze or pump container and keep in the laundry area.
To use, measure out 1/4 cup for each quart of water. Add items to be washed and agitate them around. The mixture should produce suds. If it does not, add another squirt. If your delicate items are heavily soiled, soak them for 1 or 2 hours in the cleaning solution before laundering them.
