As if you don't have enough to do!
I want to share my favorite laundry soap and yes, it is a lot of work.
If it wasn't so effective, I wouldn't do it :)
Zote Soap can be found in some grocery stores and specialty stores. It is sold by the bar and costs less than a dollar. I have found it shredded and that is a huge time saver.
Unfortunately, I can only buy the bars locally.
What you will need is:
Step 1 - Shredding
I had never used my kitchen aid shredder much so it wasn't a huge deal to spoil it shredding Zote.
Once you do, I doubt you can use it for food preparation again.
I constantly look for used kitchen aid attachments for my daughter but I haven't found any. I know people who don't use this method for shredding. I can't speak to how effective it is.
Step 2 -
My old food processor works fine to reduce the shreds into a powder and incorporate the Borax and baking powder.
3/4 cup Baking Soda
3/4 cup Borax
Cover the opening with a kitchen towel to reduce breathing in the fine powder.
Final Product -
I use about a half a cup per load. This detergent is phosphate free and works well in all types of washing machines.
As I wrote earlier, this is a time consuming process and will use appliances you will use exclusively for grinding Zote. That is an investment.
I became a fan while noticing how poorly brand name detergents were working. I have a fragrance free house so there were no sweet smells to mask the fact my clothes weren't getting clean. I found the bar of Zote on the grocery store shelf and out of curiosity bought it. I have been hooked ever since.
When I knew it was effective was after a little one spilled marina sauce on a beautiful yellow shirt. It was almost new and I couldn't soak it right away. I considered it ruined but planned to soak it a soon as possible with hopes of saving it. I didn't give the task another thought until I saw it in the dryer. THE DRYER! I had missed it and surely now it was ruined.
When I pulled it out I searched for the stain. I searched for the remnant of the stain. No stain!
I was sold.
I have used this product for over 5 years and don't regret the work it takes. I wish it took less work and if I could buy it prepared, I would. I have purchased it online, paid for shipping and traveled 40 miles to buy it. Enough said :)
