homemade laundry detergent questions
I am about to make a batch of powdered detergent and need some advice- any comments appreciated.
Here is the recipe I thought I would use:
2 cups very finely grated Zote
1 cup washing soda
1 cup Borax
5 drops essential oil- probably lavender
Mix well and store in air tight container.
Use 2 tablespoons for a large load.
I have a top loader, btw.
I want to add some oxi-clean to the mix, but how much should I add? 1 cup? 2?
I don't want the hassle of having to add vinegar to the tub each time I wash so I'd rather not deal with vinegar.
I have used Gain for many years with great results but I thought I would try something cheaper now that a box is ten dollars.
