  1. Grate the bar soap as fine as you can. I use the food processor or Kithcen Aid grater attachment to do this.
  2. Mix the borax, washing soda and oxyclean together. Combine with the grated bar soap. Working in small batches, process the soaps together to a fine powder.
  3. The oxyclean scoop is 2 Tablespoons.
  4. Use a whole scoop for large or really dirty clothes. Half a scoop for regular loads.
