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 throughout the write-up is to simply use 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.
