I am about to go back to good old "All" if I can't get this homemade laundry soap to work. How do you all do it?! What am I doing wrong.
I tried a couple dry recipes with Borax,Washing soda, Oxyclean or Baking Soda and Fels Naptha. They cleaned well but the soap didn't dissolve. So I had to mix it with boiling water and shake before adding it to the washer; PITA. So, I decided to try the same thing but to add liquid soap instead of the Fels Naptha.
My first attempt I used "Dawn" dishsoap. My some dark clothes came out with dark, grease-stain looking spots and my navy scrubs also had a faded, white-hazy look to them. I immediately quit using that.
I tried one more time with the same powders (1 cup B, 1 cup W.S, 1/2 cup Oxy clean) and Baby Dr. Bronners liquid. Still got the greasy spots and haze on my scrubs. I have rewashed them twice with "All" and "Spray 'n' Wash" and they are starting to look better; but they are faded looking and I just bought them! I can't afford to use this stuff if I am going to have to buy new scrubs every week. What am I doing wrong???
