Why You Don't Need Laundry Detergent is how a newsgroup tag-lined this piece. That title took my click and I would recommend the read to you. I'm admitting interest in this concept and to sum it up, I'll add a quote from the author:
So, there are at least two alternatives to the agitation of paying too much for laundry detergent: Ditch it altogether and use nothing more than water in your washer, or save to 90% by making your own laundry detergent.
Another point the author mentions, through out the write up, is simply using way less laundry detergent than what we probably do. I'm first to raise my hand at this - I'm guilty- I know I use extra laundry detergent.
After reading the attached link, I'm promising myself to be more conscious of how much I add.
Will you consider any of these three options?
- using less name brand soap?
- make your own detergent?
- go without soap all together?
I tell you what, the laundry soap recipe added in the link genuinely has me fascinated- I really might try it- how about you?
Does the lint/soap thing apply to towels too? I have very little lint in the dryer except for when I wash towels.
