This recipe for Laundry Detergent, by Lynnae Mika, is from The Hanner Family Cookbook,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
1 bar of soap (Ivory works best) 1 c. of borax 1 c. of Arm & Hammer washing soda
Bucket with a lid
Grate the soap and mix in bucket with borax and washing soda. I make several batches at once. When starting wash, run a few inches of HOT water and add about 3 Tbs of detergent. The hot water will melt the soap. Once soap is melted it is fine to switch the water to cold.
