Homemade Laundry Detergent

Laundry Detergent

4 lbs Borax
4 lbs Baking Soda
1 Box Arm & Hammer Washing Soap
3 Grated Bars of Fels-Naptha (use a cheese grater with the small grating size/side)
2 Containers of OxiClean 3.5 lbs each
Use 2 tsp. of soap detergent per load (good for HE washers and drum washers) 
For a specific scent add 10 to 15 drops of Essential Oil on a damp rag toss in and wash and dry with clothes.
I used to have a lot of problems with my laundry detergent making my skin itchy and dry. I decided about a year and a half ago to switch to making my own laundry detergent and this is the recipe that one of my friends moms sent my way. I have been using it ever since. I have only needed to make two batches, it has been less expensive my clothes are clean, and most importantly they don’t make me itchy and dry all of the time.
I always use Purify to help clean my clothes but you could also try Lavender, Lemon or any other Essential Oils that you love the smell of.
