I make my own allergy-free, dye-free, crazy-words-I-can't-pronouce-free clothing detergent. It's pretty cheap and easy to make. It is a great deodorizer for sports clothes and awesome at getting out stains in clothing, but remember to use a scrub brush. I even got out the dirty salt stains on ski coats. If you live in a cold climate, you know that gray dinge jackets accumulate regardless of how often you wash it. Yep, scrub brush and my natural detergent. You can find everything at a grocery store in the laundry aisle.
4 c. Borax powder4 c. Washing Soda2 bars of grated Fels Naptha soap or Zote soap (find in Mexican grocery stores)
Mix all ingredients together. I put it all in a food processor and process it until it is fine. 2 TBL per load is all you need and it's safe for high efficiency units also.
