      Can you use vinegar in the rinse to help get rid of all of the detergent? Use regular baking soda, not the Arm & Hammer laundry detergent, but just regular plain ol’ baking soda. I know it can be used as toothpaste. I know you can use it to clean things as well. Seventh Generation may have a laundry detergent that is more gentle. I haven’t tried, as All or Arm & Hammer versions that are free of dyes, perfumes, etc. work fine on my toddler and on our clothes as well. Herlean

      oldest daughter go straight into MASSIVE hives. I tried Arm & Hammer

      free or whatever their gentle one was, and daughter looked like she
      had measles.
      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.
