Re: How many laundry products do you have?

Homemade detergent
Homemade diaper detergent
Liquid oxygen bleach
Oxo brite (oxygen bleach powder)
Vinegar

I'm lucky though, I have a cupboard to put them in

Just some ideas:
The vinegar can be used as a fabric softener
I would try making a detergent that is sensitive skin safe, and just using that rather than having different detergents.
Vinegar, oxygen bleach, lemon juice, and sunning can all remove stains, do you need a stain remover as well?

Re: How many laundry products do you have?

I just bought a new bottle of detergent and one of purex crystals. On another thread someone was saying the crystals work great with diapers. I thought to give them a try since I was needing to get another bottle of fabric softener.
What I usually have in my laundry room

detergent
fabric softener
oxiclean
washing soda
borax
dawn dish soap

I do have vinegar but not in my laundry room as I use it for many different things not just laundry. Actually I rarely use it for laundry.

This is what I am working towards -
Homemade liquid detergent (for clothes)
Homemade powder detergent (for diapers)
Stain remover

I will also use peroxide, washing soda and vinager, but that is used for a lot of cleaning and stored in the laundry room.

Re: How many laundry products do you have?

Homemade liquid detergent (not made by me though)
Napisan (similar to oxyclean I think) for soaking
