Dry Homemade Laundry Detergent

Laundry detergent making day.

What recipe do you use?
Liquid or dry?
We use dry.
Playing with combinations, but currently I like:

2 cups of Fels-Naptha finely graded
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup washing soda
1 cup Borax

I use between 1/4 to 1/2 cup per load.
We have hard water so might be adjusting my recipe soon.
Try to put a splash of vinegar in the rinse cycle
when I remember.
Also, love to add essential oils too.
Love the smell of lavender and tea tree oil.

I really do enjoy making my own laundry detergent.
Really I do, promise.
