Hang gas soaked clothes outside to let the gas evaporate, then wash to try and get rid of the smell.

Hi,

I just use the 3% solution that you commonly get at any store. I splash about 1/2 cup or so in while my washer is filling up, but I've frequently read about folks using a cup.

Cheers,

I have bought from lehmans before, and really enjoy their catalog, so i added them onto my facebook page..... they had this blog posted today, advertising their laundry soap kit. Thought ya'll might be interested! But i wonder, what would happen if we substituted a gallon of vinegar for a gallon of the water... supposedly vinegar is a softener... would it work that way?

You would just have to try it. Let us know

I think that bucket is terribly awkard. I have two one gallon jugs with cap I store mine in. And it does need to be shaken before almost every use.

I wonder how much they get for that set up? probably better off collecting stuff up on your own.

Is the home made soap gentle enough for delicates and dark colours? Seem like it would eat right through a black blouse, for example?

Marilyn, I would say it is probably safe for most anything...I have seen no damage to any of my clothes so far.

Twenty bucks at the most to do it on your own if you had to buy all the dodads.... so their program makes your soap cost 2.5 times more... but still cheap... I guess Im the ultimate cheapskate
