Homemade Laundry Soap Recipe and Vinyl Cut from the Cricut for the Jar

Homemade Soap Powder and a Wal-Mart large jar, using the Cricut Expressions and vinyl.
The carts I used were All Mixed Up on 2 and A Country Life on 2 1/4.  I originally saw this on Pinterest, which now I can say I am addicted, its like looking at thousands of blogs and remembering by pinning on your board....just too cool! I  also had a pin for the laundry detergent from and here is the original pin from Being Creative to Keep My Sanity Blogspot, go HERE. My recipe is as followed at the bottom.
Using Zote Soap  and a cheap grater from Wal-Mart purchased just for the soap for $2 bucks, that way I didn't have to use the one that is much nice for my foods.I purchased the soap from  because I could not find anywhere around here even in the small Spanish/Mexican Latino stores, but if you live near one that is much more stocked you may find it there. It smells soooo good a lemony fresh scent.

Here are the rest of the ingredients, Baking soda I purchased from Wal-Mart or any other store, the Borax (20 Mule Team)from any store such as Food Lion, Wal-Mart, etc. and the Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda.

Grate the soap right on the package, it goes very quick and stays in side the grater, you can then just pick up all the pieces and place in a bowl, so you can mix before placing in your large jar. Mixing in the jar will leave a dirty look on the side of the jar from the soap hitting the sides of the jar.....lets face it looks pretty not being smeared all over.

It will look like this add the other ingredients, the Borax, the baking soda, and washing powder to the Zote and mix well. I put a small scoop in, you should use approx. 1/8 cup per load or 1/4 cup for extra dirty.

4 cups Borax
 2 cups Baking Soda
 2 cups Washing Soda
 2 cups Bar soap (grated) I only bought one bar from Amazon

Mix all ingredients well and store in a sealed tub.
Use 1/8 cup of powder per full load

Thank You
