Using Less Laundry Soap


When doing laundry, only use 1/4-1/2 of the amount of laundry soap the box calls for. It cleans clothes just as well and makes the laundry soap last twice as long.

I also do this. I recently learned you can add baking soda to detergent to make it stretch. I now add a box of baking soda to a box of detergent. Works great. (07/16/2008)

Also according to my husband, the appliance tech, the less soap the less build-up you will experience and keep maintenance costs down.

Using Less Laundry Soap

I also use about half of the recommended amount of soap. I have soft water, and find that this is enough, unless one has particularly dirty clothes, such as heavily soiled work clothes.(07/17/2008)
