Her Laundry Detergent Is Cheap And "Green"
Sister Clara Stang does her part dressing as Saint Clare of Assisi. In her white and brown "habit", Saint Clare promotes the use of an earth friendly laundry detergent which also happens to be very economical. Using common products found at most grocery and hardware stores, Saint Clare's formula results in clean clothes for only about five cents per load.
13 Cups of hot tap water
4 Tablespoons of Arm & Hammer washing soda (not baking soda!)
2 Tablespoons of Borax
1 ounce of castile soap
Few drops essential oil for scent (optional)
Pour the hot water into an empty 1-gal. milk or laundry detergent jug. Then add all ingredients. Shake to mix. Use 1/2 cup for a small laundry load, or 1 cup for a large load.
