NEW laundry soap recipe!

I had posted my laundry soap recipe a while back, and I have been using and making it for a while. It was a good recipe, but I noticed that my whites were not as white as I wanted them to be, just dingy looking. I asked a friend who makes her own laundry soap, and she gave a similar recipe to me. Also, I was looking at some other blogs recently, and found this recipe below. You can see her post here. I tried it and I have been liking it more!

The main difference is...

But there is also 1/2 cup more Borax. 

Here is the recipe:
1 bar Fels Naptha soap, grated
1 cup Borax
1 cup Washing Soda
1/4 cup Oxi-Clean (optional)

Use 1 tablespoon detergent per load (2 Tbs for heavily solid loads) 

I used Oxi-Clean that I had on hand, and I think it has made a big difference for my whites. I think I will keep using this recipe! I was disappointed that the cost of my detergents used in my recipe were raised, but I think it is still cheaper than buying any other detergent on the shelf. The above blog link where I got this recipe has a wonderful $ break-down. I checked her prices at Wal-Mart and they were correct! This recipe is still a money saver!

Do you make your own laundry detergent? It is a great way to save money!
Let me know if you try it, I'd love to hear your review!
