This is another option to get away from harsh chemicals in our home environment. We've been using this for years and are very happy with the results!
Made with sodium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium percarbonate and powdered coconut soap I make myself. Ingredients in coconut soap: saponified coconut oil with small amounts of soy & rice bran oils for lather and hardness. Similar to the kind of soap "grandma used to make", mild enough for skin, but strong enough to clean clothing, safe for regular and HE wash machines!
All of these breakdown to organic materials leaving our clothing clean & our water supply safe! No dyes, fragrances, chemical additives or sudsing agents. If you do want scent, simply add a few drops of essential oil (or however much you prefer) to the powder before putting it in the machine!
Use 1 TB for regular loads, and 2-3 TB for large or heavily soiled loads. 3 lb bag, approx 48 loads
