I decided to make a new batch today & Layla wanted to help me out.
I ended up making a smaller batch to fit my containers. I didn't feel like going out to buy a new container, since I didn't have one that would fit a whole batch.
Here is the recipe as Sandra posted:
4 lb 12 oz box of Borax
4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
3 lb 7 oz box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
3 bars of Fels-Naptha soap (or Zote)
3 lb container of Oxy Clean, or two of the smaller ones, to make about 3lbs
1 container Purex Crystals
Start out by grating your soap with a cheese grater.
Combine all the ingredients in a 5 gallon container.
Store and use however you like. Use 1 to 2 tablespoons per load.
I switched it up a bit, by just not putting as much in. If you have a smaller container, just use one bar of soap. Then use just 1-2 cups of each of the other ingredients.
I just started pouring the ingredients in & eyeballing it. It turned out fine.
Layla had a lot of fun making this with me!
*Sandra mentioned on her blog that if you have a front loading washer it needs to be added to the barrel and not the dispenser.
