They did make very nice products-everyone got them for holiday gifts-about 45 people in all. EVERYONE but my 7 uber-rich relatives LOVED what I made.
Adding lemon juice, wash clothes, one essential oil, hydrogen peroxide, dish soap and castel soap bars-you can make: liquid & powered laundry soap with stain fighters, stain remover, home-dryer dry cleaning solution, and reusable dryer sheets--from the ONE order plus those other items ALL 45 people received enough products for either 4 loads or 4 ounces of products. Which is remarkable when your whole budget for 45 people is about $2.40 each !
I'll still buy these again if I can't get out to the store though.
We haven't been using this homemade laundry detergent for very long (about 2 months), so I will post an update in future. By way of background, I purchased this laundry soap kit after reading "Make a Year's Worth of Laundry Detergent for $30.00!" ([...]). The recipe also called for OxiClean which I purchased separately on Amazon. I have a new Bosch high efficiency/front loader washing machine. I decided to give this homemade detergent a try after my old AEG washer (20 years old!) packed up and the repairman said there was nothing he could do for it - after all those years the detergent gunk had accumulated and messed up the detergent dispenser drawer, drum and filters. My housekeeper who does the laundry was shocked at how white the whites came out, so much so that she asked me whether there is bleach involved that could harm coloured items. (There is not.) I suspect that is the OxiClean doing its job. So we tried the detergent on some old stains by mixing up a little paste and water, and leaving the paste on the stain for a couple of hours, no rubbing, then laundry as usual. The stains came out 99% (100% if you didn't know to look for them). Perhaps that is the Fels Naptha laundry soap doing its job? We started off using just 1 Tbsp of this homemade detergent in the usual detergent dispenser drawer, which works well for a load of lightly soiled laundry. We have gone up to 2Tbsp or even 3Tbsp for more soiled items, or items we wanted to brighten up a bit. Is that the washing soda? My housekeeper has a heavy hand with detergent, and she washes everything on the high-temperature cotton cycle, so I have had to re-train her to be more discerning in her use of detergent quantity and to tailor the temperature of the cycle to the items being washed. (We have a weekend place where the water is very hard and chomps a washing machine every 5 years - I'm not sure whether I should try this detergent in that machine? Logic tells me I should, perhaps together with a Calgon tablet or extra washing soda in each wash - to counteract the weak lathering and accumulated mineral deposits connected to the hard water. For now we are using 1/2 cup regular branded washing powder and 1/4 cup washing soda per load. I'd be happy to hear anyone's thoughts on this, especially since our weekend place has a septic tank system.) The baking soda in this recipe does soften the fabrics a bit, but I use a separate homemade fabric softener that combines 2lbs of Epsom salts and 30-40 drops of my favourite essential oil (use 2-3 Tbsp in the fabric softener drawer). Without added fragrance, or with fragrance added to the detergent rather than the homemade fabric softener, the laundry comes out smelling clean (like the smell of water, if that makes any sense). I should also say that some of the ingredients have strange-sounding names: "Fels Naptha", "borax", "soda", etc. This might put you off as to whether the ingredients are natural or safe (for people or the environment), but from what I can gather they are perfectly safe. There is a controversy online over the use of borax, but it seems like a storm in a teacup.
