  • food processor



  • Put Fels Naptha in the fridge for overnight prior to making the recipe.
  • Add ½ cup baking soda and 1 bar of Fels Naptha to the food processor, process until the Fels Naptha is crumbly. Add to your bucket and repeat for all 3 bars of Fels Naptha (be sure to add another ½ cup baking soda each time).
  • Mix all remaining baking soda and other ingredients in a large bucket or plastic bag (be sure to use a face mask or avoid breathing in the powder particles).
  • Optional: Instead of scent booster you can use baking soda mixed with drops of essential oil (the oil will cause the baking soda to clump).
  • Add 2 tablespoons to the drum of your washing machine prior to adding in your clothes.



Some recipes call for the Fels Naptha to be blended in the food processor with the Borax. This isn't advised because you do not want to breath in the Borax dust. Use baking soda because it is better for your food processor and your lungs :). 
The scent booster is optional but we do think it makes a big difference!
