Galatians 6:14

But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Homemade Laundry Detergent

Here is a recipe for homemade laundry detergent. It is absolutely wonderful, the best thing about only costs around $.30 (cents) a gallon, yes only $.30 a gallon!

The recipe:

2 bars Dr. Bronner's Castile or Fels Nappa soap (Fels Nappa from Cracker Barrel)
1 cup Arm and Hammer Washing Soap
1/2 cup Borax

These things can be purchased at Kroger, Health Food store, and at your Local Supermaket

The Steps:

Shave or cut soap in small pieces into a non-stick pot
Add 6 cups of water
Pour into a 5 gallon bucket that has a lid (Lowes or Home Depot)
Add the Washing Soap and Borax
Fill the bucket up, leaving 4 in. at the top
Put lid on and let set for 24 hrs (by the end of the 24 hrs, it should be a gel)
Stir until it becomes liquid
Then pour in gallon milk jugs 1/2 full
When you are ready to use, fill the other half of the jug with water and shake well

This recipe should make about 10 gallons.
