  1. i tried the fav soap by liz sorry if i am miss spelling. i think i whipped it. i have about 3 inches of a soapy foam on the top of my bucket and the rest is this funky looking water.

    I know that from reading other post is will be fine, but what did I do wrong??

  2. i am so looking forward to trying this home made laundry detergent. i will post my results as soon as i get them. i read someone posted that their clothes came out dingy?

    is this an issue with the home made detergent?
