Homemade powdered laundry soap using Fels Naptha

Have you made powdered laundry soap? I don’t like it as much as the liquid but if you like powdered, you’ll like this inexpensive alternative to the $$$ stuff you buy in the store.

Powdered Laundry Soap
2 cups finely grated soap (Ivory, Fels Naptha, Zote, Kirk’s, homemade, or a combination)
1 cup borax
1 cup washing soda

Mix and store in a covered container. Use 1-2 T per load.

I have heard people say that this can be used in HE machines, but I don’t really know if I would or not. I have an HE machine but I use this powdered detergent for general cleaning around the house!
