I thought I would re-do this post about making your own laundry soap. I do a ton of laundry and we are all looking for ways to save on household supplies so here is how I spend very little every year on laundry soap.
I use only about a half scoop. The little scoop is from a container of Oxy Clean but it is roughly two tablespoons. I may add a little more for a really dirty load. Remember, I am married to a lineman and he can get pretty dirty some days. If you are doing a cold load and you find the grated soap does not dissolve all the way just mix in a cup of hot water first and add to the load.
