Brandi, thanks for posting the idea of a homemade detergent.  I have found a couple of recipes that I will try.  I would never have thought of making my own before your post.

Aren't any of you scared of using this on your almost 1000 dollar HE washers?  Someone who actually has used this for any length of time in their expensive washing mashine please let me know what it does.  I have never spent this kind of money on anything in my whole house so I am a little scared.
