Laundry soap and stain removal

Do any of you mommies have a laundry soap recipe that you absolutely love that is gentle for a babies skin? Also a stain removal recipe that will remove old stains? I would really love to learn!

    I use to use a paste of laundry detergent (just water and powdered detergent) and rub it on stains and leave if for a night or two then wash it. I also soaked it in oxyclean or Shout. Our goat milk soap seems to get stains out ok too. But nothing really from scratch. I have a laundry soap recipe but I don't know about it being gentle on baby's skin. I cannot remember if we used it when we had babies.

      I make my own and have always used it for baby too. We both have super sensitive skin but this doesn't bother us at all.
      It is:

      1 cup borax
      1 cup Arm & Hammer washing soda (not baking soda)
      One bar Fels Naptha laundry soap finely grated
      Put in zip lock bag and shake until mixed together.

      It's a powder soap which I prefer. I know you can make liquid out of it but I never have.

      Use one to two tablespoons per load, I do a bit more if it's a large load.

      The Fels Naptha soap is a great stain remover too.

      Tristen does so good with it and it's the only thing that doesn't break me out too.
