With all this talk about homemade detergents and two growing boys that go
through clothes like crazy, it's time to try the homemade detergent. I have not
found fels naphtha soap nor have I found washing soda. Borax was easy to find
and I did pick up a bar of Octagon soap. Will that work? What can I use in
place of washing soda?
