BTW, isleofviewmom, if you ever have any questions, feel free to email me. If I have any info that would help you, I'm happy to share it.

We've been fighting these allergies for years and I know how frustrating it is. DH has even been referred to some of the top allergists and dermatologists in the country and has stump them all...

Good Luck!!

I haven't made homemade laundry soup but it's kind of a soft soap...would that work? I just buy a giant box of Cal-Ben's laundry soap and it lasts our family of 3 about a year, since it's so concentrated. Works great, too. (Gawd, I sound like a commercial)

Sure thing!

Homemade Laundry Detergent:
-1 1/2 cups of Soap Flakes
I order my Soap Flakes online and found them to be a good price compared to buying bars and grating them. You can also grate a bar of Fels-Naptha or Castile soap. Fels-Naptha has some pretty harsh chemicals in it as well, so I stay far away from that. I have had success using other brands of Castile soap, though.
-1 cup Arm and Hammer Washing Soda
-1 cup Baking Soda
-1/2 cup Borax

HE directions:
Use 1 Tablespoon for a small/light load or up to 2 Tablespoon for dirtier loads. Put soap directly in the washer with your clothes and not in the soap dispenser.
Regular machines:
Use 2-4 Tablespoons per load.

I've used this for over a year now and love it. The awful smell in my front loader is gone too. You can add essential oils if you'd like a scent, but I like it the way it is.

I only use vinegar for fabric softener. Fabric softener and softener sheets were the first things we realized DH was allergic to.
