1 bar of Fels-Naptha (97 cents at Walmart- find it in the laundry detergent aisle) or a cheap bar of soap.
1/2 cup of Borax
1 cup of Washing Powder- NOT baking powder or baking soda, which they also house with the laundry detergent.
You will also need a 5 gallon bucket, a grater and a small pot. I had to buy all of these things, but no worries, I'll recoup the money spent ultimately.
Stir again in the morning/afternoon/whenever and fill a used, clean, laundry soap dispenser half full with the soap/water mixture and then fill rest of way with water. Shake it up well before you use it each time, or it will get gunky and gel-like.
|See how weird it is when you first open the container the next morning? LOL|
For Front Load Machines, use 1/4 cup per load (Approx. 640 loads)
