What's For Breakfast's Laundry Recipe

Last Friday (2/13/09) we featured Lisa Randall from Blackberry on What's for Breakfast. Among other things, she gave us a recipe for homemade laundry detergent:

Shave a bar of soap into a quart of water. Boil until the soap dissolves.

Put this liquid into a 5 gallon bucket. Add 1 cup of Borax, 1 cup of washing soda (can be found in the laundry aisle at stores - NOT baking soda)

Mix these together with 2 1/2 gallons of hot water.

Let this sit overnight.

When it cools it will turn into a soft, jello-like substance. Mix really good (lisa used a hand mixer). It will make a thick liquid. Use 1 cup per load of laundry.
