Yes I use it.
1 cup ivory bar soap or Zote,  grated
One cup Borax
One cup Washing Soda
(I add a couple squeezes (not too much of Dawn dish soap)
Mix in the food processor.
Use about 2-3 tablespoons for a large load.

I have in the past- recipe similiar to the one posted by sunshine, minus the dish soap. For our family it was the best soap I have ever used! This is also wonderful for people that are sensitive to the many additives in commercial soaps.

I make it all the time minus dish soap. Great for allergies and last for a moth or so. Very cost effective, only thing is you do not have the smell you get with Gain or things like that .

I add the clear no dye dish soap for my boys (hubs and son) who could get a grease stain on their clothes if they lived in a bubble.  It helps release the grease stains with out a pre-treat.  If it was just us girls the regular recipe would do.

Thanks for all the responses.

I have a front loading machine. Do any of you have one of these? You can't use the same kind of detergent as a top loader, without causing problems....
