 Making your own laundry detergent is quick and safe for HE machines.

Add 3 cups of white vinegar and 1/2 of baking soda, using the hottest and fullest setting. Let it agitate for a few seconds then stop. You want the mixture to sit 10-30mins depending on how dirty it is.


Most dryers consume a similar amount of energy to dry one load of clothes. However, a dryer powered by natural gas will dry a load of clothes three times faster than an electric dryer.

6 1/2 ounces denatured alcohol
2 cups soap flakes
2 ounces essential oil

Mix all ingredients and store in a wide necked jar. When ready to use, mix one to two tablespoons per cup of hot water. Stir until dissolved and then add to lukewarm wash water.
 


Laundry detergent and bleach bottles are a basic in almost every home. But what can you do with them beyond the laundry room? More than you've ever imagined! Store rock salt in a clean and thoroughly dried bottle, tightly capped. When the storm hits, you can hold it by the handle and sprinkle away without taking off your gloves. 

  • Concentrated laundry detergents have been around in one form or another since the 1960s. Sometimes called “ultra” products, these products offer the same cleaning properties as the old familiar detergents and also help the environment.


The key to using concentrated products is to make sure you us the right amount of detergent. Be sure to read the product label. Even experienced laundry-doers can guess the right amount incorrectly. There is no need to dilute or use the product any differently than regular detergent.
Concentrated Benefits

One of the main benefits of concentrated products is their lightened impact on the environment. Smaller bottles use less plastic which means less packaging to recycle and less impact on the environment. Smaller containers mean less fuel is needed to ship these products. Manufacturers use less water in detergent production which means reduced use of a very precious natural resource.

And, smaller detergent containers are easier to carry and store at home. They are perfect for those who must use a laundromat or community laundry room.
