1 Cup grated Fels Naptha Soap (I use a kitchen veggie grater)
1/2 cup washing soda (this is NOT baking soda)
1/2 cup Borax
For light or regular load, use 1 tablespoon. For heavy soiled load, use 2 tablespoons.
I know it doesn't look like much but it does clean the clothes. Ask your local appliance dealer and they will tell you that it is not the soap that is cleaning the clothes but the agitation of the washer. You will not see suds in the washer. Again, a myth that you have to have suds or the clothes won't be clean.
Lots of great websites on simple living but if you want a couple really great books, read these:
Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin
The Simple Living Guide by Janet Luhrs
Both are excellant. Our kids are getting the first one this year for Christmas!
Don't talk about life. Do life!
