Step 2: Pour one cup borax into your plastic tub with your grated soap. The hardest part of this step for me was opening the box.
I really hate those "to open- press here" tabs. They take me forever to open and I always end up just shoving a knife into the box.
Step 3: Pour one cup of washing soda into the container of soap and borax.
The mixture you come up with will look something like my container below.
Instructions for use: Add one tablespoon of this mixture to your laundry. I have a HE machine, and per user reviews of this recipe, it is recommended just to dump your tablespoon straight into the washer with your clothes. If you don't have an HE machine, I believe you can just put this straight into your soap drawer/spot just like you would put in powdered detergent.
I've also read that adding a few drops of essential oils in your chosen scent can give your laundry a fresh smell to it, but I prefer the detergent to be unscented. While washing, you can definitely smell this soap, but by the time it is rinsed and dried, your clothes don't smell like anything- they're just clean!
