DIY Laundry Detergent ~ New & Improved!!

New & Improved!!
Most Definitely!!

I really liked my older version of detergent, 
you can check that out here, but this one 

I honestly didn't think it would make that much of a difference, but it does!
I only added two extra ingredients. 
Yes... I had too much fun playing with the sparkle on Pic Monkey... :)
And...No, that is NOT shredded cheese on the paper plate.  
It's the Fels-Naptha soap grated.
If you want more details on how I make the detergent, 
check out my earlier version.
I'm just going to run through the ingredients here.
All you need:
1 C. Borax
1 C. Super Washing Soda
1 Fels-Naptha bar soap grated

Here's the new ingredients....

1/2 C. Oxi Clean
1/3 C. Unstopables or Crystals

I mixed them all in my mini food processor. 
It chops and mixes everything up really well.
That's it!!
I usually use 1-2 Tablespoons per load.
Great for HE and front load washers!

With my old mix, sometimes I would find tiny pieces of the soap in the front rim of my washer.  Now, I never see any residue and my wash smells wonderful! The Oxi Clean just boosts the colors and gets more stains out.
Hope you all like it as much as I do!
