Dirty Laundry

Making your own laundry soap

1.5 cups Borax
1.5 cups Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
1 bar Ivory Soap - shaved

I loved shaving the soap
I just used a small paring knife that will now be my official shaving knife
There was something very therapeutic about it

Mix it all together 
Use 1 tablespoon per one full load of laundry
I am going to document how many loads of laundry I get from this one concoction

I like my laundry to smell super fresh, so we'll see how this works
Boy, I'm optimistic
The price is definitely right!
I think I spent less than $7.00 on all the ingredients
I still have almost full boxes of borax and washing soap
