Peppermint laundry soap

When I found the recipe for this laundry soap here, I knew I just had to try it. Peppermint is such a refreshing scent. I've done some loads with it already, and this recipe is a keeper.

Peppermint Laundry Soap
(makes approximately 5 cups)

2 cups finely grated castile soap (1-1/2 .5 ounce bars makes about 2 cups; Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castile soap is divine!)

1 cup borax

1 cup baking soda

1 cup soda ash (washing soda)

Mix everything together and store in an air tight jar. Use 1/8 cup per load. Before using, give jar a shake to prevent soap flakes from settling on the bottom.
