    1/2 c. Borax
    2 c. water

  • Measure the Washing soda and Borax into a baggie or small bowl, mix well to combine and break up any chunks that may be in the soaps.Very finely grate the 1/2 bar of fels naptha. In a medium size saucepan bring water to a boil, dump in the finely grated fels naptha and stir continuously for 8 min.

  • Once the soap is completely (100%) dissolved with NO chunks at all, add in the washing soda/borax mix, stirring constantly. It will be a very thick, creamy consistency. Remove from heat and pour into a medium size bowl, let it cool for at least 20 minutes.

  • Using a Hand mixer, Whip it until
it has doubled in volume. Do not add any additional liquid, it is not necessary and will dilute the strength of your finished detergent.

  • Once the mixture has been whipped, form it into 48 balls. This can be done several different ways, a melon baller works perfectly to make even balls. Alternatively, we found this delightful mini-ice cube tray at the dollar store (Each slot holds 2 tsps)

  • Fill each slot, place the tray in the freezer for 15 minutes, then pop out the Laundry Bombs. Again, if you don't have a mini ice cube tray you can use a melon baller. Each ball is about 2 teaspoons TOTAL.

  • Store them in a covered container or plastic bag. We prefer a covered container to prevent them from being broken/crushed.
