no-grate homemade laundry detergent: in a 1 gallon bottle combine: 3 T borax, 3 T washing soda, 2 T Dawn; disolve in 4 cups boiling water. When cool fill all the way to the top with cold water letting the bubbles run out.
only need a tablespoon per load NEVER purchase another laundry detergent brand. This has inspired me to make more homemade cleaning products :) very exciting! Laundry soap recipe - for months' worth of soap.
