Bo­rax acts as a stain re­mover, dis­in­fec­tant, wa­ter soft­ener and de­odoriser, but it can ir­ri­tate sen­si­tive skin, so wear rub­ber gloves if wash­ing clothes by hand.

In a large bucket, mix to­gether 2 cups wash­ing soda, 2 cups bo­rax, 1 cup grated soap (castile soap is ideal) and a few tea­spoons of bak­ing soda.

For a fra­grant mix, add 1 tea­spoon laven­der oil and 1 tea­spoon rose­wood oil, or es­sen­tial oils of your choice. Mix well and store in a dark en­vi­ron­ment. Use 1/ cup for

8 a medium load or ¼ cup for heavy or ex­tra dirty loads.
