Re: Finally got a homemade detergent that works

Thanks for sharing! Do you also use this with diapers? How much do you use per a load?

I have tried every liquid and powder recipe...I think the calgon was the key with my hard water!!!!! No fading and gets stuff clean!
How much do you use each time? Do you use this in the front loading HE machines?

Yes, I have an lg tromm. I used 1-2 tsp per load (depending on how much is in the load.

From what I have read, everything is cd safe..I am using up the rest of my diaper detergent right now though.

Good to know! We do the Eco-Friendly Family Blog recipe and it works great for us, but it doesn't work so well for our friends with hard water issues.

The only place I can find powder. Calgon is meijer and amazon. I did get everything else from target (except maybe the sun...I have had it forever)
