I used to make my own soap from the Fels Naptha, Borax and baking soda. But I also noticed that it didn't really seem to get my clothes clean. Plus, it wasn't that much cheaper than the Arm and Hammer. So, I went back to using that.

I tried the homemade laundry soap for a while too, and was not impressed. The clothes wouldn't come clean, and had a weird smell. I don't have an HE washer, just an older Kenmore series 90 model. So I gave up with the home made and went back to store detergents.

This is what I usually make. I add the Oxy Clean to mine and it smells great. I can't use perfumed detergents or it affects my allergies.

I love Oxy! It does wonders for getting stains and odors out.
