    Grate 1 Ivory bar bath soap into a huge pot of boiling water. Add Borax and Arm & Hammer soaps. 1 cup each. Let cool. Whisk vigorously. Pour into a 5 gallon bucket. Put a Dollar Tree ladle and a whisk, both plastic, into the bucket. Carry it covered to your laundry room. Whisk again if it gets clumpy and use the ladle to put into the washing machine while the water is filling. Add your clothes. I have never had a problem with any fading etc. with this recipe. Wash on, folks !
