Make you own laundry detergent with 4 ingredients.  
Why?  It's much cheaper.  I was skeptical at first, but
figured it was worth a try.  It's just as good as the kind
I was buying.  I have been making my own ever since.
In a large pot on high:
1 gallon water
1/3 bar Fels Naptha, grated
Cook until the soap is completely melted, stirring
occasionally.  This will take about 15-20 minutes.

Add:
1/2 c Borax
1/2 c Washing Soda
When the powders are fully dissolved, remove from
heat.

Add:
3 qt water
Stir.

Makes 200+ ounces.

I store this in 2 old jugs.
It will thicken & clump.  This means you did it right.
Just shake the jug before measuring.
If you fill the jug to the top you won't be able to shake
it, so leave room.
One full lid per full load.

dirt on it."
