How can I make homemade laundry soap?

Making Earth- and people-friendly laundry soap is simple and inexpensive. For starters, try this easy whitening formula from Natural Home magazine:

Bleach/Brightener Substitute
1 cup hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup lemon or grapefruit juice
12 cups water

Store in a labeled plastic jug. Add 2 cups per load.

Since you are adding lemon or grapefruit juice, does this have to be refrigerated?
