Make your own laundry detergent

I have been thinking about this for the past few months. I looked it up on the web and found that it looks pretty easy.

You will need:
  • Borax (sodium borate, available in the laundry section of most grocery stores)

  • Washing Soda (sodium carbonate, can be purchased at pool supply store)

  • Bar soap (such as Zote laundry soap, or even regular bar soap like Ivory)

  • Water

The recipes are very similar, but I have no experience with this, so check it out for yourself:

For an easy-to-follow demonstration of how to make your own liquid laundry detergent.

Directions for powdered or liquid detergent.

Another good site

Now, what do you think? Is it worth it? Does anyone have any experience to share with this? I am thinking about trying it and already bought my borax.
