Directions:
Grate the soap and put it in a sauce pan. Add 6 cups water and heat it until the soap melts. Add the washing soda and the borax and stir until it is dissolved. Remove from heat. Pour 4 cups hot water in to the bucket. Now add your soap mixture and stir. Now add 1 gallon plus 6 cups of water and stir. Let the soap sit for about 24 hours and it will gel. Use 1/2 cup per load.

Personal Notes:
With a family of 5, I wash a lot of clothes. At average prices, this laundry detergent cost about $0.02 cents per load, and one batch makes about 56 loads. I always triple the recipe and fill several empty detergent bottles.
