    This detergent works really well... I have been making my own for about 5 years and I can imagine how much money I have saved..I order my Borax and washing soda and I use Fels Naptha soap from Alice.com It is cheaper than in any of the grocery stores and I usually orde 3 boxes of each at the time and it is delivere right to my door....The only thing I do add is a tub of Oxi-Clean because my hubby gets his work clothes really greasy and grimy and they come out so much cleaner than any of the high dollar det. on the market..and you can order Gain scented essential oil and add to this mix and it smells just like Gain....LoVe IT!!!!!!

    I've used a version of this recipe for a couple of years now and I will never go back to store bought brands. Is a 3rd of the cost and last me at least 4 months per batch. I do add oxy clean and use an old food processor grate the soap down, mixing the powdered ingredients a little at time.

    Can this be used with the HE machines?

    I don't have an HE machine and I've heard that it's not supposed to be used with one ... but I also have friends that do use it with their HE machines and haven't had problems.

    I've been making homemade laundry soap using either Fels Naptha or Zote (whatever is available at the time) since I first got my HE machine 4 years ago and have never had a problem with it.
