Happiness Is Making Your Own Laundry Detergent

| 2/8/2012 8:40:46 PM

Friends, the day I learned of theis recipe, was the day my life was changed forever.  I've always heard of making your own laundry detergent, but was born a skeptic and needed proof.  Some friends of mine found this recipe and tried it.  They told me about it and one of them, being an even bigger skeptic than me sang its praises.  So I tried it, and was very pleased with the results.  So pleased in fact, that I've been using it now for three years and wouldn't have it any other way.  Now, I know what some of you may be thinking. You're brand loyal, and that's fine.  Some of you might also be thinking that you buy "green" or "eco" detergent, and that's fine too.  But here's my pitch:  What if I told you that you could make a totally biodegradable soap for pennies, and it works great!  Any takers? How about I give you the recipe to try for yourself, and you can thank me later.

I've tried this formula before, as well as a couple different variations without success. After just a few washes, my clothes looked dingy and dull and just never really seemed clean. I've even tried using a followup vinegar rinse, but it didn't help improve the performance. I've heard others who loved it and it worked well for them, but unfortunately, it just didn't work for me. I was wondering if I could attribute the failure to my well water, but a friend with public water tried it too and it didn't work for her either. But don't let that stop you from giving it a try, it may work wonders for you!

I used the Arm and Hammer kind, so I guess that is what is wrong. So it should be a liquid then?
