Using the Amount on the Box or Bottle

When doing laundry, you only need to use about half the amount of soap that the box or bottle calls for to get your clothes clean. More soap can gunk up your washer and doesn't always rinse properly out of your clothes, leaving an unsightly build-up.

You are so right. Both my son and I kept having rashes and itching like crazy, but after I started using almost half the amount of detergent and allowing our clothes to soak for 90 minutes before completing the wash cycle we have been rash and itch free. Great post. Thanks
