    My dh works for a township..and is constantly working on stuff...I just cannot get those grease stains out~! I've tried oxyclean....era..shout...spray and wash...something called 'goop;._just about everything...but the one thing I did NOT try is coke~! Who woulda thought it????
    It has not always gotten stains out that have been set in from washing and drying many times but the majority of the stains come right out!
    I also use "RIT" for whitening whites and stain removal. You can find that in the laundry section with the "RIT" dyes, little packages of powder with instructions inside the box for both wash machine method and boiling method. Some badly stained whites I boil with it and then wash normally and they come out white as new and stain free!
    Good luck!

    Cher, if it was me, I'd care very much if the reflective tape gets damaged. It's there for a very good reason.

    Hi,
    I am new here and this is exactly the thread I was looking for. My bil recently died and he stock piled many things. I received large numerous bottles of Dawn dishwashing liquid (blue kind).

    My thoughts were why can't I use some of this for laundry detergent. I have a dishwasher so it would take a long time to use this up.

    Also got 18 bottles of Apple Cider Vinegar (still trying to figure out how to use this up)

    So here is my question. Instead of diluting this how much would one add to a extra large load of laundry in a top loading washing machine? 1/8 of a cup or 1/4 of a cup? less more?

    Thanks
