  1. Hi! I love your site! I just wish I could find the time to do so many of them. My children are 3 and 4, so time is the most valuable thing in my life, next to money! There is never enough of either! Anyhow, I am very interested in making my own laundry soap, however, my husband bought me a front loading, HE washer. The dispenser on the front as well and I am embarrassed to admit I haven't figured it out quite well yet. I don't know if I can use the soap and/or vinager the way you suggested. Can you recommend what I should do using a front loader? I can't add H2o first, so how would I get the soap to dissolve if I am doing a dark load? My Mom always taught me to NEVER use hot water on darks, new clothes or anything you don't want to shrink. I really would like to use homemade soap though because my whole family has pretty sensitive skin. Our water is fairly hard as well. I get so worried b/c I can't afford to ruin our clothes. We have a pretty tight budget these days! I understand you may not be sure, but if you have any ideas or anything, I would really, really appreciate it. Thank you so much for such a wonderful, beautiful site! I really hope to hear from you soon. My email is jesselee08701@yahoo.com
    Sincerely,

  2. Hi JesseLee,
    Thank you for visiting my site. I appreciate your questions. It is my understanding that front loading washers do better with low sudsing detergents, which should make this detergent work fine, because it is low sudsing. Here is a link
    that might help:

    You should have no problem with the vinegar; although the front loaders are different in that they don't really have the ability to soak the way the older washers do, because they use less water; Never the less, your laundry will benefit from the vinegar, especially if you have hard water. Try adding it to the box where it says fabric softener, or straight on to the clothes; don't be afraid to experiment (conservatively). I hope that helps. Blessings,
    Pam
