- 76 oz box
- 4 lb. box
- arm & hammer baking soda
- 55 oz. box
- arm & hammer washing soda
- 3 bars
- fels naptha soap (or zote)
- 3 1/2 lb
- oxy clean granulated cleaner (or store brand)
1Start by grating Fels Naptha soap bar; use food processor or box grater. For HE washing machines, you should run it through the food processor a second time to get a really fine grind of the soap.
2In a 5-gallon, combine the grated soap with other ingredients and mix well. You can use your hands or a long-handled spoon or spatula.
3When thoroughly combined, store in a 5-gallon bucket which you have lined with a sturdy garbage bag; you can either tie the bag closed with a twistie-tie or cover with bucket lid if available.
4**Don't worry, the Fels Naptha will dissolve in your washer even if you only use cold water.
NOTE: Another member said she uses the Fels Naptha Flakes instead of having to grate the soap; one package is equivalent to 4 bars soap, so you could divide the box amount by 4 and save the remaining part for another use.
