    I have been making my own soap with the Borax, Arm & Hammer, Dawn dish soap. Wash in warm water. I have a mess on my cloths, especially the dark cloths, dried white powder all over. I have even boiled the dry ingredients with the water and let cool.

      @Donnie Hi Donnie, I know how to not have the white powder on your clothes. 1st let your washer run water, add the dry soap mixture and let your washer wash WITHOUT the clothes for a minute or so. This will dissolve the powder. Then, put your clothes

    To Donnie: Rinse your clothes thoroughly; I rinse my clothes about 3 times over. This will get the dry powder off of your clothes. OR, make your own liquid laundry detergent.

    Jean, that kind of defeats the purpose doesn't it? You save on laundry detergent but spend it on using so much water.

      @Sonia Burrows No, not really. When I rinse a 2nd time, sometimes 3 times, you will see some soap in the water.
