Liquid Laundry Soap

I posted about my dry laundry soap, now for the one I started with originally.  I remember being very unsure of this when I first made it.  How could I make 5 gallons of laundry soap that would actually clean for under $5.00 when I would pay over $50.00 to buy an equal amount of "loads".  Just like the dry soap, you don't use near as much soap.  I use 1/4 cup (which is actually more than it calls for).

So...Let's get started.
You will need (all found in the laundry detergent isle)
 1 bar of fels-Naptha soap
1 cup borax
1 cup arm and hammer washing soda
2 cups baking soda
and a 5 gallon bucket for mixing and storing
