Here is another green cleaning product I’ve started making. Its also way cheaper than traditional laundry detergent. It leaves your clothes smelling fresh and clean but not overly flowery smelling, which is better for sensitive skin.
It even makes my husband’s nasty smelling flight suits smell clean, and very little can take that flight suit smell away. Its been working really well on cleaning the kids clothes as well. Although the flight suits are the real test, those things smell like fuel mixed with old sweat! Lovely, right?
2/3 bar soap (I buy fels-naptha online in bulk)
1 cup borax
1 cup washing soda
essential oil, like tea tree (optional)
Shave bar of soap with a cheese grater. Mix in washing soda and borax. Add essential oil if you want a nice smell to it.
use 1-2 Tbs per load depending on size and how soiled it is.
