Homemade Lavender Laundry Detergent
4 – 4oz bars of grated Castile soap
1- 78oz. box of Borax
8 lbs of baking soda
3 tablespoons lavender, lemon or grapefruit essential oil (I use lavender and I put a little extra in)
Grate the soap, I tried a grater that sucks. Save yourself time and man power and use your food processor! Combine all ingredients except essential oil. Stir several times with your hands or a wooden spoon to mix all ingredients together. Add essential oil, mix, add essential oil, mix. Do that several times until it smells nice. One batch will cover 288 loads if you are using 2 T per load.
