1 bar of glycerin soap, grated finely
1 cup of washing soda
1/2 cup of baking soda
1/2 cup of citric acid

The glycerin grated bar soap is a by product of reindering fats and often made from vegtible oil or animal fats. This soap has no parabens but does contain color dye but is paraben and lauryl sulfate free which is better for the water systems and better than other detergents. Baking soda is made from soda ash or sodium carbonate which is a natural source. Baking soda can make water system become salty disrupting eco system but is the better alternative than other harmful chemicals used in detergents. Citric acid biodegrades in the environment and washing soda is non-toxic. This detergent cleans clothes just as well as any other detergent but is better for the environment and cost less.
For use put 1/4 of a cup in each load, this may vary according to how big indivdual loads of laundry are.
