ladybug41 homemade laundry soap

I have made a change to this recipe, as when you make your own arm and hammer baking soda into baking soda wash powder,there is a highly chemical change that occurs and it can take your breath away.(I will leave that at the bottom of this recipe)But I'd prefer that you just buy the arm and hammer baking soda washing powder and not convert the baking soda(cooking stuff) into the wash powder.I just learned this one in October.It can save you money.You are buying baking soda very cheaply and turning it into Baking Soda(like arm and Hammer)to use to wash your clothes with.YES you heard that right.
