      I’m too lazy to cook up laundry soap anymore, so I just open up a box

      of washing soda, add in an equal amount of borax, and go! Sometimes

      I’ll get fancy and trow a bar of bath soap in a food processor and

      add that to the mix, but I’m not that sure it’s necessary. I had a

      little regular laundry liquid left over from when I switched, and

      I’ve used for spots, but that’s it. I just use the 50/50 mix

      (without the bar of soap) for my dishwasher, as well, and for both

      machines, vinegar works well as a clarifier for dishes, and to reduce

      static for clothes (affects the electron charge). If I need to scrub

      up around the house, I’ll put a bit of the 50/50 in a bucket of hot

      water, then add a squirt of dish soap. I never use another cleaner.

      For disinfecting, I use Listerine (it was used in prepping for

      surgery in the olden days, before people began to rinse their mouths

      with it), vinegar or hydrogen peroxide. My house is chemical free,

      for the most part, and my family is literally healthier(i.e.

      significantly fewer doctor’s visits). We’re saving a good deal of

      money, too.

      I hope that helps. The book where I got these ideas is called

      _Organic Housekeeping_, by Ellen Sandbeck. I wrote her about

      questions I had regarding the material, and she actually responded to

      me with great assistance. Nice lady.
