Make your own pre-measured laundry detergent tablets with this easy recipe. You will need equal parts:
*Laundry bar (Fels Naptha, castille, Zote ect.)
Works well in a front loading washer.
Grate or chop the soap bar and blend it into a fine powder in the food processor. Mix together remaining ingredients. Then add enough water to make the laundry soap clump together. Press the soap into a mold (ice cube trays or mini muffin tin). Let it dry overnight or until solid.
HE washers will only need 1-2 tablespoons per load so plan your tablet size accordingly.
Top loaders will need about 1/4 C.
For this particular batch I used roughly 1-1/4 C of each ingredient because that was how much powder I got from one Fels Naptha bar.

X on Jul 17, 2017Grate 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 !
