    Default Homemade Laundry soap and softner warning

    Hi all, I wonted to share with you all that my 3and7 y/o girls both
    were in ICU for 5 days, they both had pylonephritis -at the same time-
    The drs. said it was from making and using my own laundry soap.
    I used (grated)bar soap, 1 cup borax, and 1 cup liquid detergent and
    water. Softner I used 6 cups white vinegar, 6 cups baking soda,1 cup
    liquid softner, 12 cup water.

    I am sorry that you have had this happen. I don't know how much water you
    are using for the soap mixture BUT you are using toooooooooo much
    ingredients in your softner. For my softner I use hair conditioner 2T in 8
    oz of water in a spray bottle. I use 3-4 squirts / load in the dryer and it
    has lasted for a year and 3/4 bottle to go.

    2 questions: 1. Do you spray the softener into the dryer? On to a
    cloth? 2. did the DR say WHY using the homemade detergent would cause
    an infection??? maybe he didn't think the clothes were getting clean?

    How did making your own laundry cause your children to have a kidney infection? No disrespect intended just curious. My daughter had a kidney infection when she was 4 and spent several days in the hospital but I don?t make my own detergent. They never really gave us a cause.

    Ok, Please correct me if I am wrong-- I am no doctor, but something
    sounds totally amiss here to me. I looked up this "pylonephritis" and
    found that it is a BACTERIAL infection (like in the kidneys?). I would
    want to ask these doctors to explain how laundry soap ingredients are
    related to bacteria! Unless your ingredients are somehow contaminated
    (I would think highly unlikely), I just don't see the correlation. And
    then why don't ALL the family members have it? And too, borax and
    vinegar both are to some extent ANTI-bacterial--at least from what I
    have read. Sorry, guys, I'm just suspicious of this "explanation".
