    That's a great resource, Julie!


    I hadn't seen this before in regard to the powdered detergent...
    (for hard water, add 3.5 cups of washing soda to mixture)
    . I have soft water so I'll have to try leaving this out the next time I make a batch and see how it works. That could save me some more money!

    Ok, somehow part of my post is missing!

    What I said in reference to the quote.......... I hadn't seen that stated before. We have soft water so I'll have to leave the washing soda out the next time I make a batch and see how effectively it works. That could save me some more money!

    I don't see how the baking soda and vinegar are good mixed together ahead of time. They will react and bubble and the acid and base combine. Thinking hard back to chemistry I suppose they produce some type of salt, anyway, I only mix them to break things up in a slow drain. They are also used to make fake volcanoes, so you have the watch how you combine them! (I used to teach chemistry but it is all sort of vague.)
