Homemade Laundry Soap (for less than $1/month)
Grate your bar of soap using a cheese grater. In a large pot, melt your grated soap with 18 Cups of water. Make sure the soap melts completely, then add your borax and washing soda. Stir until combined. Remove from heat. Pour 12 cups of hot water into your 5 gallon bucket. Add in your soap mixture and stir. Fill the rest of the bucket with water.
