|The three active ingredients and the bottle awaiting to be filled|
FOR those of us that hate grating soap and standing around whilst it dissolves in boiling water (ain't nobody got time for that!), here is what I believe to be the simplest, quickest laundry liquid recipe ever.
1 x cup of dish washing detergent (the $1 stuff from Aldi is fine)
1/2 cup of washing soda (not bicarb soda)
1/2 cup of borax
10 litres of hot tap water (the heat helps the powders dissolve real quick)
|Borax, washing soda and dish washing|
detergent - that's it
Mix it all up till it dissolves (highly technical....please re read carefully!)
How to use:
1/4 cup per wash. Perhaps 1/3 cup for very large loads.

Not convinced? Make a small batch and try it out. I promise you it will not break the bank! Ha.
Take care folks and stay nice.
