A Greener Home Part 4About a year ago we purchased a new front load high efficiency washer. And It stinks! The laundry smells sour as you can plainly see by the look on Jacks face.....I bought the EXPENSIVE tablets to use monthly but they don't work. I also noticed that my washer acts like its about to take off for outer-space every time it gets to the final spin cycle. I found out that they do that when the pumps get clogged. The main reason they get clogged.......fabric softener and detergent build up. So I set out to find a Homemade Detergent and softener ............
.........that would do the job without cloggin' up the pump and creating odor causing bacteria.......I tried several different recipes that I found in books and the web before I chose this recipe for liquid detergent. Some of the recipes I tried were way to thick.....they wouldn't even pour out of the jug. I tried making this recipe with liquid castile soap but it didn't thicken at all. Needless to say my laundry room has looked like a science experiment for the past few months. I'm glad I finally found what I was lookin' for and I hope that this will be helpful to ya'll!
