Not only is it easy to make your own powdered laundry detergent . . . it is less expensive, good for the new(and old) washing machines and no more lugging heavy boxes in from the grocery store! When you are done - put in a decorative container on your machine. No sense in not making your laundry space pretty too. Another bonus - you can use your ends/scraps of your body/facial soaps to grate up in your first step. Great way to recycle that good soap that is too small. Just add enough end/scraps to total one full bar.
