Re: Detergent question?

"Homemade (1 pound each baking soda, washing soda, borax ... 1 bar of Kirk's castille soap puffed up in microwave then cooled and flaked and put through the blender ... add 1-2 Tablespoons per load) ... Doesn't work quite as well as Country Save but outperforms all the others. After using for 1 year, we have no soap buildup (washing soda cuts soap). "

Puffed up in microwave??? Could you detail? I've been very interested in making my own detergent.

Use tide or gain liquid. Never any problems at all. I've also use EcoSprout several times and diapers come out clean as well.

Re: Detergent question?

I use Country Save Powder... it was the highest recommended by Cotton Babies when I started cloth 5 years ago. I use it on ALL laundry & I love it! 1 box lasts me a good long while too.
