2:1:1 (2 parts dried powdered soap, 1 part super washing soda (sodium carbonate), 1 part 20 Mule Team Borax (sodium borate))

First I grate the Zote (my favorite choice for soap) in my food processor.  I lay it out into a plastic box to dry a couple of days, then I use my magic bullet or blender to make soap into a fine powder. (A friend, of mine, used Ivory Soap bars and it works beautifully, too.)

There have been times when my super washing powder and/or borax is very lumpy, due to high humidity in my garage.  I take it out back, for better ventilation and sift it into a big bowl before I mix it into the jar.
