I’ve got my first load of laundry with this detergent going- I’m actually excited about it, can’t wait to see the results! If it works I think I’ll spend a sitcom grating soap and make a big batch. Thanks for posting!
As for the amount, 1-2 Tbsp is all I’ve ever needed. And I don’t really know about the instructions on the boxes, but I think normally when you add washing soda or baking soda to your normal laundry along with your detergent, it’s as a booster, so maybe for really really dirty clothes. I’m sure that it works on super dirty clothes when you follow those instructions to use them as a booster, but it also works just fine as a replacement for regular laundry detergent in regular laundry loads.
