In getting more settled and finally somewhat back in cinque with where I was headed I have assembled the ingredients for a more natural and cost-effective homemade laundry soap.
I combine borax:baking soda on a 3:1 basis. Then I add OxiClean (about a scoop for 3 c borax). After this I shred the Zote directly into the mix. You can see from the photo how much Zote I use (this photo was taken after I mixed the Zote into the other ingredients).
Use as you would your regular detergent.
