I love that detergent! I need something else to put it in, however;  My hubby does not like it in a jar with a scoop...he prefers pouring it into the holder on the dishwasher...any ideas?  I was thinking maybe some sort of tupperware thing with a pour spout?  Ugly, but functional...can tupperware be painted? Cheesy

 I need to buy citric acid in bulk since I also use it for cheesemaking!

How about an empty salt "box" (the cylinder)? You could decorate it pretty Smiley  But, it'd be hard to fill... How about one of those sugar pouring things like you see at diners? Has pouring capabilities, and the cover comes off so you could re-fill it easily (and put your silica gel packet in there!!).

Is this detergent good for sensitive skin? My daughter and I can't have the scented laundry detergent because it makes us itch. I wonder if homemade would be better?

The detergent we were talking about is for dishwashing..Cheesy

I do have a recipe for laundry detergent as well...it uses borax and washing soda, no scents, no dyes...it is the same stuff that the Sensitive Skin Arm & Hammer uses, only without all of the additives...unless you have a job that gets you really really dirty, most people use way too much detergent...clothes will actually get clean with plain water and agitation, but we are not used to that anymore!

I used this tutorial:

Anyway, here is the bag I received from my partner...she was very very late sending so I will probably only be able to use it a few times this summer! Cheesy

I have super sensitive skin. I make my own because I can't use commercial powdered soap.

1 bar grated Ivory soap
1c Borax
1c Arm and Hammer Super Wash. Make sure it's the super wash. It's usually in with the laundry detergents.

Maybe I'll try one or both of those. I use very little detergent in my laundry. Maybe I'll try it this weekend. Thanks

On the topic of home made laundry detergent.  I used it for a few months and it was fine for most of my newer textiles.  But I lost a few vintage cotton sheets and t shirts while using it.  One of my 1970's Indian cotton sheets literally fell apart in the wash and I have been using it for years with no issue.  And one of my favo old shirts came out covered in new holes.  I am guessing I had used too much of the washing soap mixture...but I thought I should meantion that it is not as gentle as I was figuring it would be.

And alwaysimr is right about over soaping.  I often wash my loads with no soap and they come out clean and smelling nice.  Hub's shirts how ever have to be washed with soap...or washed several times during hot times of the year.  But that's what I get for marrying Bigfoot Grin
