Homemade Powdered Laundry Detergent

It was said today during a campaign announcement that she (announcer) tells her sales staff team, "I reserve the right to get smarter."

I just stumbled upon a better version of homemade laundry detergent. For months I've made the liquid version, but Crystal at The Thrifty Mama shares a better way with a powered recipe.

No more dissolving the grated bar of soap on the stove! No more measuring of water! No more 5 gallon bucket taking up precious real estate in my cramped laundry room!

Powdered Laundry Detergent Recipe

Ingredients:

* 1 cup Washing Soda
* 1 cup Borax
* 1 bar Fels Naptha Soap (grated)

Directions:
Mix dry ingredients and store in an air-tight container. Add 2-3 Tablespoons to a load.

For those who are greener try Soap Nuts. What a great gift idea!
