Homemade Lemon Myrtle Washing Powder

Making your own washing powder is fun, cheap and easy. Here is our Aussie version, using native Lemon Myrtle leaves.

Homemade Washing Powder Ingredients:
1 Cup Borax, 1 Cup Washing Soda, 1 bar of your favorite hard soap (grated), 4-8 Lemon Myrtle Leaves - mix all together. 
Use 1 tablespoon per wash. 
Makes around 40 washes. 
The Lemon Myrtle leaves add a fresh lemony smell to the powder, but I don't actually put them in the machine, just in case they clog it up.
