Soap that looks like cheddar??

Sorry, I didn't include in the picture 2 TBSP of OXI-CLEAN powder


Looks like a block of cheddar cheese, doesn't it????
Finished product

I have been "studying" this for quite some time and trying different recipes, tweekin....tweekin.
I even tried it out on my mom, giving her a sample to try. So, she calls me last week and reported she absolutely LOVES the laundrey detergent. Requesting another supply.

Have you noticed the prices of "store bought" detergent? Of course, you have....whew. I makes me dizzy.

I even researched use with HE washers and found this works quite well. Note: I put the detergent inside with the towels,sheets...ets...others place it in the dispenser without any problems.
Just remember this may negate your warranty.

I haven't tried it with clothes, clothes...just with sheets, towels, etc.
Others, report it works well without fading.

Recipe: 3 cups Mule Team Borax Laundry Booster
3 cups Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
2 bars FelsNaptha Soap
2 tablespoons Oxi-Clean powder

Grate soap using cheese grater. Combine all ingredients and stir well. Store in sealed container or Zip-Lock bag. Use 2 tablespoon per load. Use 1 tablespoon with HE.
This averages about 7 cents per load. Quite cheaper than store bought.
