Laundry Detergent

Kathey Jo Hickey-Van Otten


I got this recipe from a self sufficient class at church. Have been using it this year and it is really wonderful. I do not need to buy softener either or use bleach. It gets the clothes very clean and makes them nice smelling..

  2. Just mix it all up together and use 1/2 cup in each load.
