If you can't find the Fels or the washing soda( Arm and Hammer brand) you can order them online. My Wal-mart doesn't carry the washing soda so I have to go to a bigger grocery chain. I tried the vinegar for a while, but it didn't get rid of the static cling that you get in the winter time so I had to go back to dryer sheets.
I have tried Kirks Castille soap for the laundry soap and didn't like the results. The Fels is specifically for laundry stains so that may be why it works. On the site Tipnut.com, I have read that you can use any bar soap that is made with coconut oil, vegetable oil, etc., in other words anything natural. So you can use Ivory or Zote or soaps like that. I hope this helps!

I'm definitely going to try this. I'm hoping I'll find the ingredients at my local stater bros or wal-mart. :) Thanks for posting.

I'll definitely be trying this out. If it's only $2 to make 10 gallons that's insanely awesome. Hope it works! Thanks!

Thinking about trying that tator tot casserole too. Just have to break down that recipe big time. Michelle Duggar is used to feeding 18 kids. lol

Fells Naptha is the soap that you are looking for. I have been making my own laundry soap for about 6 months now and love it! I am not sure about the recipe on the Duggar site, but if you go to Tipnut.com and put "laundry soap" in the search bar, you will find recipes.
I don't know where you live, but I get the Fells at Meijer, the washing soda(not baking soda)at Meijer and the Borax at Wal-mart. Hope this helps!
