Wow, such a great idea and a wonderful tutorial. I'm definitely going to try this one out, as I totally appreciate being able to not pay crazy amounts for laundry detergent...

I'm really surprised at how difficult of a time people are having finding Fels-Naptha and washing soda I've seen one or both of them in just about every supermarket (and not just the natural-food ones) around.  I haven't hit the fancier ones, but the cheap and the mid-range have these things.  Maybe it's because I live in the Pacific Northwest where a lot of people are "greenies"?

TheMistressT, I often forget we live in a sort of green-living paradise.  (I live in Portland). 

I love the idea of tea tree oil - nice and clean!  I'm going to make some this afternoon.

I'm in Portland, too!  And I think I tend to assume things based on how it is here.  I made some yesterday, scented with sweet orange essential oil (just over /5 oz) and am washing my first load now!  I have a front loader and used the amount that I use of my store bought stuff, so we'll see how it goes.  The recipe I used suggested 1 oz of oil, but in the interest of keeping costs down I used half and it smells plenty strong.  But then I noticed how strongly store-bought smells compared to how much it makes the laundry smell and I'm wondering about the result.

I live in IL and I found them in both "bean town" Decatur and hip Edwardsvill. They were in the Landry aisle. The borax and Arm & hammer were at the end of the stuff the soap bar was with the spot and pretreaters. But I cant find a list of ingredients on the Bar.

I make laundry soap, but liquid. I thought about adding some sort of scent, but wasn't sure what I wanted to use. I know some people use essential oils.
Pretty fun making laundry soap, isn't it??!

Oh and BTW, I found Arm & Hammer washing soda at King Soopers. I hope everyone tries making laundry soap it really does save tons of money!
