      I just joined the site and mixed up my very first batch of Super Laundry Sauce Original Recipe. I followed the directions exactly and now I'm just waiting for the 4 hours to pass. So far all has gone well.

      I plan to save lots of money with my Super Laundry Sauce! It is wonderful and so easy & cheap to make! My husband has always had to have a special type of Tide because of his allergies but this Sauce (detergent) works for him and his allergies! Great news!

      Can you use essential oils to add different scents?

      Just finished some powdered detergent as I didn't find any liquids I liked. This sounds like a winner and will make.

      I love the powdered MYO laundry soap (I use irish spring soap because Im allergic to Ivory), my only complaint is that pet hair seems to stick to everything (my aussie and golden shep/collie mix should be bald by now..which would solve the problem.. lol) Has anyone else noticed this problem? if so.. what did you do to improve?

      Has anyone used SLS on military uniforms? Some things can deteriorate the material of uniforms and I want to be sure that doesn't happen before I use this on my husbands uniforms. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated

      Corina,
      There's nothing in the soap that will harm the uniforms, in fact, this is one of the mildest ones I've ever used. Most of the ingredients are found in other soaps but this recipe leaves out the detergents and salts that would harm uniform fabrics.

      Yes, I use this in our front loader all the time! The only difference is that you need to put the Laundry Sauce on a piece of laundry to get it into the washing machine. Don't put it down through the detergent dispensers as it could clog them. I haven't had any problems at all, and everyone loves the scent! I have just started more jars, a few minutes ago. Doesn't hurt to stock up!

      Is there an equivalent bar of soap besides the Fels Napta because I cannot seem to find that here in Canada. We have Sunlight and Linda bars of laundry soap. Can I just throw all of it in a Kitchen Ninja and throw the switch? lol Also, I have twins who work in fast food kitchens and come home covered in "grease"! It doesn't seem to matter what I put in the washer nor what temp. I use, they come out still feeling/looking greasy. Does anyone have any suggestions for washing their uniforms? I LOVE THIS SITE!!!

      Several of our Canadian members have mentioned that Sunlight bars work well for them...
