If I did the math correctly that would be about 64 loads for less than $5.00 and not only that but if you got the soap from amazon it would be less than $3.00 for the 64 loads plus much healthier!

Laundry detergent

About 3 oz.bar soap (I used a whole 4oz bar),grated. Any soap will do but Castile works well. Don't be concerned with the scent as it washes away in the laundry but I have added a couple drops of essential oils to mine.

1/2 cup borax
1/2 cup washing soda (found in the detergent isle)

Prepare as directed below. Use 1/2 cup per load. Mine made almost 2 gallons.

In a large pot(I used a stock pot) combine 6 cups of water with the grated soap and heat on med.high until soap is melted.Stir in borax and washing soda until everything is dissolved. In a large bucket place 4 cups of hot water and then add your soap mixture. Stir well and then add 1 gallon plus 6 cups of water. Stir again and let sit overnight., The detergent will be a watery gel that might look cloudy.

Looks good Hana(the site) Thanks!....I will have to check it out closer when I have more time. I used to buy my husband soap shampoo for when he works out at the fitness center as it was easier to carry in his bag...he really liked it but now uses my Aveda liquid even thoug his bar was Aveda also!

About a year ago, I changed to soap shampoo to wash my hair and rinse it with little bit of apple cider vinger and water and it seemed to do the trick in terms of loosing hair. Now my hair is much healthier! I got my soap shampoo through http://www.soapforgoodnesssake.com and I love their Babassu Shampoo Bar!

I forgot....I bought a big bottle of Cayenne pepper and used to sprinkle this on various veggies in the garden....it did work at least for some bugs. I made laundry detergent yesterday...it really only took about 15 min or a little longer and I got about 2 gallons of non chemical detergant for about $5.00 can't beat that price. I have a crazy week at work but hope to post the recipe this weekend! Smells good also but I did add a couple drops of essential oils to my washer when I used my sample. It's a little gel like cloudy white but I don't care if it works and can't beat the price!

I'll try the chiles! I tell you, when that one "stood on end" and chided me, I about lost it! By the way, I did use the soda and vinegar down my bathroom sink, it is still pretty clogged, I must have started with a very large amount of hair down the sink - I know I am losing a lot of hair, I keep complaining to the MD, he doesn't listen - I should take him my sink!!

Maybe spraying chile water?? Boil water and put chilie in it, cook it for about 30 min, drain chile, once water cools put it in a sprayer and spray on the plants...hopefully your lettus would not spicy ; )

My 1st thought was corn meal as that works for ants but i didn't know if it would work for your worms/bugs.

Jane, I looked up sites too after posting my question - I was being lazy! I was hoping someone had something like vinegar HAHAHA that they had used. I have just spent even more time squishing those things, probably 30 minutes in 2 containers! Mike didn't think they were in the soil, but they sure were - then they would come out on the pot and on their hind ends so to speak and mock me!

Those stainless coffee mugs keep the coffe hotter much longer as well!!! I have one that keeps it so hot I can barely drink it!

SAVINGS...if you buy a stainless steel coffee mug you not only get your coffee about $.50 cheaper but you're not polluting the environment with all the foam. I find my mugs much easier to use in the car also.
