Homemade No-Grate Laundry Detergent

I was almost out of my store bought detergent and the cost of buying the ingredients to make my own equaled one bottle of store bought detergent. There was nothing to lose trying but so much more money in my pocket to gain! The great thing is that these ingredients will make detergent for at least a year. That's about $10 worth of ingredients for a whole year of laundry detergent. Plus, this is a no grate recipe!

Gather your ingredients. You need:
•3 Tablespoons of Borax
•3 Tablespoons of Washing Soda
•2 Tablespoons Dawn Dishwashing Detergent
•A bottle to mix it in (mine is an old milk bottle)
Pour the three ingredients into a gallon container. Use a funnel or a piece of paper rolled into a funnel.
Pour 4 cups of boiling water into the container and swirl until dissolved.
Let cool and then fill container with cold water. Make sure to fill the container up to the top with water – not just suds. Let the suds run over while filling. You will still have plenty of soap inside.
