Homemade Detergent

We started making our washing detergent a couple of years ago and I love it. Only three ingredients and it has the "clean" smell with no extra perfumes and words you can't pronounce. Plus for me, the preparation is a stress reliever.

Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
1/2 cup 20 Mule Team Borax
1 cup grated Fels Naptha (this come in a bar)
-Mix and store in an air tight container. 2 tbsp for light loads, 3 tbsp for heavy loads.

I grate the Fels Naptha with the smallest grate size and I can get two cups out of one bar. Also, I add more detergent per load.
