COMMENT:
This recipe sounds interesting. However, we recently purchased a high efficiency washer. Is there an adjustment for these new machines?

COMMENT:
I just made this and have washed two loads. I thought they wouldn't smell "washed" but they do. It cost less than $1.00 to make enough detergent to last months. Two thumbs up!

it's great for clothes, I have been using this recipe for 2 years, and I love it, give it a try!! You can also use 1/2 cup vinegar for the rinse cycle to soften clothes!
