Homemade detergent recipes?

I have been cloth diapering for about 6 months now, and my homemade detergent just isn't cutting it anymore! I think it started giving me trouble when my little guy began eating solids. My recipe calls for equal parts of borax, washing soda, and oxygen cleaner (like Sun). Those of you who make your own detergent, what works for you?? I have hard water, if that helps at all. Thanks in advance!

I did the one from a blog, something about Creative to Keep My Sanity, that adds a box each baking soda and soap to that mix (I use 15oz Kirks Castille, not Fels Naptha). I leave out the oxygen bleach. For hard water I'd add a box of Calgon.

But for Diapers I prefer Country Save to homemade.

That's what I have been doing also. I have made my own detergent for quite some time now and had forgotten how expensive it was!!
