Thanks to Cindy for this Frugal Baby Tip!

1/3 bar Fels Naptha Laundry Soap, grated
1/2 cup Borax (usually known as "20 Mule Team")
1/2 cup Arm & Hammer powdered laundry soap

Hi there... I make this soap and have found a way to make it a little more
"tightwaddy" ...I add about two quarts more water than is called for -- makes it more the consistency of a regular laundry detergent...

Another tip, I add about a half cup of baking soda that I scent with essential oil and it works even better..

BTW, I have extremely hard water, so I think this is why it helps. Not sure about that, though. I love this soap -- I found my Fels Naptha at all my local grocery stores here (Denver).
