Homemade Dish Washer Detergent

Have ya'll noticed that soap in general is ubber (yeah ubber is a word ok) expensive?
So I thought why not make my own!
Greenier, Cheaper...sounds good to me!
And turns out it even works better!
My Mother-In-Law and I both think it works better than the store bought stuff we have always used.
So now that I've got you interested,
 do you want to learn how to make some for your self?
Well alrightly than!

You'll need:
1 Box of Arm and Harmer Super Washing Soda
1 Box of Borax
24 packects of  unsweetened lemonade drink mix
3 cups of Epsom Salt
A container to store it in
A large bowl or bucket to mix it in

And if you need or want a rinsing aid you can use vinegar in that load!

All you do is mix it all in a very big bowl or a clean bucket
( I used a new Home Depo 'Homer' bucket)
Mix well!

Once it is mixed well put your new soap in an air tight container of your choice.

I used these drink containers for the 'pour spout' but it is not air tight.
So I have since moved it to a jar.

You use just 1Tbs per load!
Yup that's it!
Super easy, cheap and works really well!
I love that is makes so much it will last for a very long time!
I spilt it with my mother in law.

Let me know if you try it, what you think!
I'm plan on making laundry soap with week,
just need to get a huge pot to "cook" it in!
