I make the liquid home made detergent because I wash in cold water and the powdered doesn't disolve for me...

1 Bar Fels Naptha, Castille or Zote shredded, like cheese
1 cup washing soda (not baking soda)
1 cup Borax,
Boil 12 cups of water, add in the bar soap until melted, then the borax and washing soda.
Pour into a large bucket
Add in 8 cups hot water
Stir until mixed.
Then add in 2 gallons and 4 more cups water, I use luke warm. Stir until mixed. Let it sit over night until it gels. Use about 1/4- 1/2 cup per load. I pour mine into small empty Tide bottles, makes about 9-10 bottles worth.

I also use white vinegar as my fabric softner in place of regular fabric softner. No, it doesn't make your clothes smell like vinegar... It does rinse out any leftover soap and makes your clothes unbelievably soft!

For dryer sheets I dilute fabric softner. 1 bottles of fabric softner to 2 bottles of water. Cut some sponges in half, and put together with the mixture in a container. Take 1 sponge, squeeze the excess out and toss in when putting a load in the dryer. I got this one from the McDougalls website!

You can also use plain white vinegar in your dishwasher instead of Jet Dry

for 5 gallons of detergent:
2 bars of fels naptha soap shredded
2 cups arm & hammer super washing soda
2 cups borax ( muleteam) laundry booster
5 gallons of hot tap water

melt the shredded soap in 1/2 gallon of water
the other 4 1/2 gallon of water divided into 2= 5 gallon buckets and add the 2 cups washing soda and the 2 cups of borax stir till mixed then add melted soap and pour the buckets back and forth till mixed.do it slowly or it will be to sudsy.then start puring the mixture into jugs and leave enough room in the bottles so you can shake the soap for each use because it will gel up.
