I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to get away from the cost of buying liquid
Tide. Unfortunately every other laundry soap I have tried made my
oldest daughter go straight into MASSIVE hives. I tried Arm & Hammer

I know homemeade should be gentler, but after all the trial and error
to just find one that did not cause bad reactions, I have stuck with
it for the last 5 years.
I also can not wash our clothes in one thing and hers in another,
because just that tiny bit left in the washer still effects her.
Wondering if there is something that can make the soaps rinse
cleaner? We are looking at getting a better washing machine, anyone
know if that would really make a big difference?
If it does, I might start having her wash her own clothes seperately
from all the rest of the families, and get us some cheapo detergent
and buy her Tide.
