So when I first starred hearing about this well over 2 years ago I was thinking people had lost there minds!! I was a Tide girl and there is no way I was going to try it. I mean it would destroy and discolor my clothing and leave me itchy right??? WRONG
My mom started making liquid detergent and her clothing always looked great. Then she washed a few of the kids items and they smelled great and looked wonderful. So she talked me into trying it. My husband made fun thought it was crazy until we tried it and we both had to eat our words. It worked great our clothing was clean and we even liked the fresh smell. Now you had to shake it and it was hard to handle but my mom and dad made it and gave it to us so the logistics of it were not a problem for us. Then came the Powder (WE LOVE THE POWDER) I never have used powder detergent before and was sure I would not like it. But it is so easy to make and use. You can keep it in cute containers and it only takes 2 tablespoons. That’s correct only 2 tablespoons!! I will have to tell you our whites have never been this white and our close always come clean.
I keep an opened bar of the Fels-Naptha on my shelf and use it as a pre treating bar and works great!
Some people use Oxy clean in theirs but it’s not needed at all my socks and tops are always crisp white. Even our white baseball paints always came clean.
You need is
3 bars of Fels Naptha,
1 box 4 pounds of 20 Mule Team Borax
1 box 55 ounce of Arm & Hammer SUPER WASHING SODA (not baking soda)Grate the bars of Napha and mix everything together and your done!2 tablespoons in each load
