1 bar of soap
1 cup of washing soda
1 cup of borax
Microwave the bar of soap for about a minute so that it balloons (making it easier to process). Alternatively you could grate the bar but then you have larger chunks of soap. Throw the soap, washing soda, and borax in to a food processor and blend away. In less than ten minutes you have homemade laundry powder. It only takes 1-2 Tbl of soap for each load.
Fels Naptha is considered the gold standard for making homemade detergent. I rarely find this soap in the stores (it's only a dollar when I do) so I add this on to an amazon order whenever I need it. I've tried making detergent with ivory and it didn't work as well. The Fels Naptha soap gets my laundry CLEAN (and I have two pets and three kids).
Seriously, don't bother with tomato juice. Fels is soap, it suds up fast, cuts the odor instantly, rinses out completely and washes down the drain. In 3 minutes your skunk issue is 100% solved. Once your dog is dry, you can bury your nose in its fur and smell nothing but dog fur.
PROS: Perfect skunk solution.
CONS: Your dog might like skunk odor. Apparently mine does.
Melt half a bar of grated Fels and a half bar (or scraps equivalent) of grated Ivory in your laundry pot (that you'll never use for anything else). Add about 2 cups of water, and then turn on medium heat. Watch the pot, or else it will boil over and give you a huge mess.
When the soap is melted, add half gallon of water and stir well
Add 1 cup of Borax and 1 cup of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda (not baking soda)
Boil it for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly and keeping an eye out to prevent boil over, which it will want to do. Keep a cup of cold water on hand at all times, just in case it rises up fast and threatens to boil over. Throw on the cold water if you must to prevent a mess.
Once you've boiled it for five minutes, add about a half gallon of water, slowly, and stir to mix. Add more water to fill the pot 3/4 full (I use about a 3 gallon pot). Let it cool for half hour, and then take one of those stick mixers (don't use it for anything but laundry, but luckily, you can get one for a couple of bucks). Mix up the laundry detergent really well, to where it's a nice gel consistency. Store it in a tightly closed container. (I have one of those Coleman small coolers, the ones with a thick plastic handle that locks in place when you turn it one way, but opens when you turn it the other way. That's my laundry detergent container, and it's lasted for years.)
You should have about enough laundry detergent to fill that small cooler, or at least a 2 gallon bucket. I have a plastic ladle that I keep with the container, and I use a ladle full of detergent per load. This is incredibly cheap laundry detergent, and it works for my two farming boys, so I think it would work for anyone.
In addition to being a key ingredient in home made laundry soap, it is magic on black appliances.
The black glass front of the oven gets pretty gunky. First I work up a lather on a cleaning cloth, and use it all over the stove, followed by wiping it down with a clean damp cloth. Same for the other appliances as well as wood cabinets.
It has the smell of 'clean' not perfume.
Next the bathroom. Great on tile. The outside of the commode. The floor.
A bar lasts a long time when it isn't grated up for laundry soap. Way cheaper per use than spray bottles, and more effective.
It's been around so long because it works.
