1 cup Borax
1 cup washing soda (Arm and Hammer)
1/4 cup salt
Mix all together and fill dispensers before starting. Use vinegar in the rinse agent area.
I already make my own laundry detergent, and that seems to be working pretty well. So, I'm going to give this a try, too! Why not give it a try and let me know what you think. :)
I read that Borax isn't particularly safe around the kitchen (can be harmful to us if ingested). Of course, my thought is that most any cleaning agent in the kitchen is not overly safe around food...
