Eco-Friendly Laundry Detergent

With the price of laundry detergent these days, I decided to try a recipe that I've had for a couple years now. Some of you may have used this before and I welcome any comments you may have.

20 Mule Team Borax
Arm & Hammer Soda Wash (NOT baking soda)
1 Bella body bar (any fragrance)

Using a cheese grater, grate the Bella body bar.

In a large plastic bag, combine grated Bella bar with 1 cup 20 Mule Team Borax and 1 cup A & H Soda Wash. Mix very well. Use 1 to 2 Tablespoons (depending on load size.

This will not produce a large amount of suds. You will not have any soap residue left on your clothes and they come out very clean and fresh smelling.

Bella bars may be purchased at
