      This post brought back memories. When my daughter was young she had to

      do a school project. It was on comparing liquid laundry detergent. She

      took white sample cloths and put dye on one, grease, lipstick etc and

      let them sit for 2 hours before washing. Everything had to be the same

      sit times and water temp etc. Then she would do the next cloth and

      start the process again. Well she compared the famous well known

      brands and then the cheap ones. The Arm & Hammer liquid won without a

      doubt. The teachers were impressed. You all should do a test like

      that. Don’t pay extra just because of the commercial.

      washer and only use around 2 tsp. or a bit more per load. A big

      bottle of liquid detergent (200 oz.) usually lasts me 6 months or

      longer. So I would really interested to know too.

      exercise….Thanks!!
