The Washing Soda provides the "cleaning" power of the soap mix. Some people have also mentioned it works sort of like OxyClean -- a detergent booster.
Here is the recipe:
1 bar of fels naptha - grated
1 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax
1 cup of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
If you buy the 55 oz. Washing Soda it will make 6 batches of the homemade detergent (for which you would need 6 bars of fels naptha & 1 76 oz. box of Borax). Making 6 batches is equivalent to about 2 gallons of detergent. We bought an 8.1 quart snap ware container to hold the soap and it works great. It takes probably 30 minutes to an hour to make 6 batches with the biggest factor depending on how long it takes to grate the fels naptha (we have two of us making it -- if you only had one you might have to take more frequent "arm" rest breaks).
We use 1 tbsp. of the mix per laundry load and feel like it does a great job. One of our friends only uses 1/2 tbsp. but we feel like that is really cutting it low.
Unfortunately the Amazon purchase of these products seems to be much higher than several other company's price points. We subsequently found the products cheaper on DrugStore.com (and found an online coupon for $5 off & free shipping!), and the other day notice our local Walmart sells them even cheaper than DrugStore.com. Using the prices at Walmart we can make the detergent for less than $0.05 a load! Using the Drugstore.com prices it was around $0.073 a load and a bit higher with Amazon prices.
I recently discovered the joys of making and having my own laundry soap. Having this substance is essential for that process. It's also good as a non-toxic substitute for making other cleansers and as a laundry additive. It's especially helpful for those of us that live in hard water areas, because it helps to change polarity and keep hard water from staining and causing damage.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm tired of using all those toxic cleansers. I don't even use chlorine bleach anymore.
Those of you on here griping about the price of things when you write a review on a product are off-topic.
The difference between baking soda and washing soda is water and carbon dioxide. Baking soda's chemical makeup is NaHCO3 (1 sodium, 1 hydrogen, one carbon, and 3 oxygen molecules). Washing soda's chemical makeup is Na2CO3 (2 sodium, 1 carbon, and 3 oxygen molecules). When baking soda is heated up to high temperatures, it breaks down to become washing soda, water steam, and carbon dioxide.
Washing Soda is also a key ingredient to making your own laundry soap. I tried making my own laundry soap 4 months ago, and have been hooked on it ever since. Yes, I thought making your own laundry soap was stupid too, until I tried it.
The brick and mortar stores have better prices on this stuff than Amazon does.
