Made some powdered laundry soap over the weekend. First load was a success! Came out looking clean. Reading some sites it sounds like some people have a problem or aren't sure about borax...the toxicity...but I figured for now I would try it as a lot of people do use it with no problem or hesitation. And who really knows what's in regular laundry soap. At least this is a three ingredient recipe. I've been using vinegar as fabric softener for a while now and it works great! Doesn't make your clothes smell like vinegar at all but does the trick of softening! Cheap, effective and safe~give it a try!
