    Laundry soap:
    one bar of soap (I live castille soap or ivory. A lot of people use Fels-Naptha.)
    half to one cup WASHING soda
    half to one cup borax
    half to one oxy clean
    essential oil (optional)

    I like to leave my soap out, unwrapped, for a couple of days to cure before I grate it on a box grater. Then I simply add my other ingredients and blend a little bit at a time in a blender for a nice fine powder. I usually make several batches at a time and use 1T per load or 2T if the load is extra large or heavily soiled. Okay for HE machines as it’s a low-suds soap.
