My sweet husband is the research buff in the house (recall the large amounts of blind faith mentioned in the last post?) and my little laundry detergent experiment gave him a new project. I thought the fruits of his labors might be helpful to others wanting to make detergent.
Here are the highlights:
1. Oxi-Clean is similar to Washing Soda, but it's a diluted version of it. So, for maximum bang for your buck, the real Arm & Hammer Washing Soda is the way to go.
2. Ace Hardware has Washing Soda on their website. You can order it and have it shipped to a store near you for no shipping cost. It arrives, you pay the price + tax and don't hassle with a massive search.
As soon as ours comes in and my current batch of detergent runs out, I'll be making a suped-up Washing Soda batch and will report back.
That's it for today. No cute pictures - sorry about that. But hopefully it inspires you to make a mess in your kitchen, too. :)
