Perfume free laundry detergent

For a large load of laundry, mix:
1 full cereal size bowl of baking soda
1 full cereal size bowl of white distilled vinegar
1/2 to 1 full cereal size bowl of Borax
Instructions: Begin a load of laundry.  As water fills the washing machine, pour the baking soda.  Make sure you empty the bowl of all the baking soda residue and then pour the vinegar. 
The reason for this is that when you pour the vinegar in the bowl while there's some baking soda residue, the 2 ingredients fizz when mixed together and you don't want the bowl to overflow before you pour the ingredients into the washing machine.  This mixture is great because it's affordable, easy to use, non-toxic, earth-friendly and completely free of toxic petro-chemicals and irritants. 
We use this efficient method every time we do laundry and we always have very positive results! Copyright 2009 D. A. Colvin
