My stepmother gave me her recipe for laundry booster last year and I have been using it ever since.  I use a 1 cup measuring cup and a large Tupperware container to store the finished laundry booster.  (Mine measures 14 1/2 ” L x 12 1/4″ H)   I cut 1 bar in half and add 1 cup of each of the other ingredients and ran the food processor with the puree blade. Just slice up your Fels Naptha bar into 1 ” cubes before chopping it in the food processor.  Make batches with 1/2 bar and 1 cup of each of the others until you use all the borax and washing soda.  Mix doesn’t have to be precise.  *******(do not add the scented crystals to your food processor)*** hand stir them into the Tupperware container.**** Use separate 1 cup measuring cup for the baking soda.  Super clean the food processor bowl, blade, and lid after you finish. This recipe used 4 bars of the laundry soap, full boxes of borax and washing soda, part of the Oxi Clean and the full amount of scented crystals.  I had plenty baking soda left over.

Borax Powder

Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

Fels Naptha Bars

Baking Soda

Oxi Clean Powder

Use the scoop in the Oxi Clean and add 1 scoop to each laundry load in the tumbler.  I also use my liquid unscented laundry soap to the normal line on my machine.   Makes everything smell fresher and is great to scrub stubborn stains and you can also soak stained items for extra stain removing power.  I love the lavender scent and lavender is supposed to repel mosquitoes, we get a lot of them here.

    Great laundry soap Stephanie. I just made some a month ago. Saves money and smells good too.

      I used it last night and forgot to add the liquid soap and it still came out smelling clean with lavender scent. 🙂
