I got this recipe today and I plan to make a batch this weekend! Iowa winter dries my skin terribly and hopefully this perfume free detergent will be a little gentler:
1 bar naptha soap grated or shaved with a knife
1 cup of Borax
4.5 galllons of water
*Heat about 1 gallon of water and mix in naptha soap until dissloved.
*Mix Borax and remaining water in 5 gallon bucket
*Stir in soap mixture
***Both borax and naptha soap are available at many grocery stores.
The mixture should gel as it cools. Use about 1 cup per load of laundry.
