Homemade Powdered Laundry Soap

I always wanted to make my own laundry soap, but was nervous because you had to heat the Fel Naptha. I have no idea if there is any lye in there, I looked it up and could not find an answer. So in my searchings, and wanderngs I have found...

::::drum roll please::::


No fear of triefing up pots here! Yippee!

Powdered Laundry Detergent 1 cup grated Fels Naptha Soap 1/2 cup washing soda 1/2 cup 20 mule team borax Mix and store in airtight container or bag. For light loads, use 2 tablespoon. For heavy loads, use 3 tablespoons.

Ok, so I tried it out and I can't decide yet if I am wild about it. It does not suds up alot, so that is good. I am not so sure if it is the most ecomonical. I think you get more for your money by making the liquid gel kind. I am going to get a pot and try that and see which one I like better.
