Out of necessity-Homemade Detergent

I never thought I would do this. Yet because of 2 munchkins in our home with crazy allergies, I finally broke down and made my own detergent. Reality is that it not very hard at all! 
You need: 
1 bar of soap (I used Fels Naptha)
1 cup of Borax
1 cup of Super Washing Soda

1. Grate the bar of soap. Yes the whole thing. This was the most tedious party. 

2. Then add the borax and super washing soda. 
3. Then stir for 5 minutes. 
4. Store in something with a tight lid like a mason jar. 
5. Just add 1 TSP to each load of wash. I add 2 TSP when doing an heavy load! 

Yes this is safe for HE washers too. 

Crazy how my Friday nights have changed!
