  1. I made your detergent recipe 3 months ago but I added orange essential oil. I have not tried it in my dishwasher but I tried it in my laundry. I normally use Calbens SeaFoam powdered laundry detergent. I tried your recipe washing my husbands work cloths. I added distilled white vinegar in the rinse and I was pleased by the results. I do not know why so many people who have homemade laundry soap recipes use borax as a main ingredient. Borax makes colors fade and the soap will not dissolve in cold water. I was wondering how much you use in your laundry? I use the scooper from my Calbens laundry detergent.
