Make your own laundry soap??

I have been making my own laundry soap and I LOVE IT... i have finally found one the i really like and love the smell of it... so clean smelling!
Grate the bar of fels-naptha with your cheese grater... DO NOT LET THE KIDS MISTAKE IT FOR CHEDDAR... because is does look like it, and it almost happened here.

Add 1 cup washing soda , 1 cup baking soda and 1 cup borax.. I store it in a plastic Tupperware container and use about 1/8 cup per load... it does not get sudsy like normal store bought detergent... but it gets the job done for a fraction of the cost!
P.s. I start the washer and put in the soap and let it fill up about 1/2 way before i put the clothes in, that way the soap can disinagrate first.
