"homemade" laundry detergent and CD's

All over the internet is a recipe for homemade laundry detergent using borax, washing soda, and grated Fells Naptha soap (and some essential oils if you want). Do you think this could be used on CD's? I know the borax and washing soda is safe, but I'm wondering if the soap would adhere to the dipes and make them get stinky. Has anyone used this recipe on dipes? I still want to make it to use on our clothes (it ends up being like .02 per load!!!) but it would be nice if I could just have one method for all my laundry.

I don't use borax or washing soda on our dipes. I've read that they can really wear out the fibers. I use two seperate homemade mixtures; onr for regular laundry, one for diapers. My diaper one is just baking soda with tto and a little french green clay (to carry the tto). I add white vinegar to the first rinse. It works wonderfully! HTH
