Making Baby & Sensitive Skin Laundry Detergent/Soap

Homemade Laundry Detergents, DIY, Easy yet very good product for a fraction of the cost.
Do you have one of these in your home? If you do this DIY Powdered Laundry Detergent/Soap may be useful. We've used this quite a few times for baby and sensitive skin.
Any of these three soaps or a combination of will work in this mixture. White Dial Only is great for sensitive skin. Kirk's Castile Soap is so very mild and coconut only adds to the sweet smell, We all know that Ivory is a pretty good gentle soap that packs a punch when it comes to cleaning delicates and baby clothes.
You will need a grater of some sort for the soap. I use my KitchenAid as you can see in the center and then I pulse to further chop finely. You will want this detergent mixture ground finely for easier dissolving and rinsing from clothing.
You will need Super Washing Soda and 20 Mule Team Borax. Baking Soda is an added softener and it helps to whiten laundry. It isn't mandatory but I think it is, especially for this mixture.
Remember the old Ivory Snow Detergent?
2 cups of finely grated soap
1 cup Borax
1 cup Washing Soda
1/4 cup Baking Soda
