Heavy Duty Laundry Detergent

Heavy Duty Laundry Detergent
3 cups Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
3 cups 20 Mule Team Borax
3 cups Laundry Soap
3/4 cup Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
Optional:  5 caps of Fragrance Crystals, Pearls or several drops of Essential Oils of your choice.

You will need:
Grater, Food Processor or Blender, Container with lid, Labels, Mask
Heavy Duty Laundry Detergent Plus  Add 1/2 cup  Oxi-Clean to above mixture Or You can increase the Borax because it is a Color-Safe Bleach substitute.  You can also just add 1/2 cup to the detergent into the wash cycle at the time of washing.

Grate your soap measure and set aside
Measure your washing soda and borax set aside
Using your food processor add some washing soda, borax and grated soap, process until your soap is mixed with the other ingredients and is a powder.
Do this in several batches.
In large container pour the processed mix, add the baking soda and if you wish the laundry crystals, stir well.
Add to a lidded and labeled container for use.  Place a scoop, preferably one that will measure out what you need to save time when you do the laundry. 
I have a top loading machine and use a 1/4 cup because that is what it takes to clean my laundry.
You experiment with your needs for your washing machine and laundry.  You may need less.  I hope you find your mixture that will work good for you. HE Machines start with 2 Tbs to see how it works for you.
