To use for laundry soap:
Depending on if you have soft or hard water, you will most likely want to use washing soda. Washing soda. also known as sodium carbonate, will soften water, increase lather, and decrease soap scum. Soap scum is created when the soap molecules mix with calcium and magnesium in the water. It is best to add the desired amount of washing soda to the washer first (if possible), then add the soap scraps after. By doing this two-step process, each person can adjust the desired amount of washing soda needed to soften each person's water and prevent soap scum. Those on well water can have significantly higher mineral content than those on city water with a water softener. A good starting point would be to use equal amounts of washing soda and soap each, and begin adjusting from there as you see fit. The best part about washing with soap is how fresh the clothes smell afterward as well as minimizing our dependency on toxic chemicals. Enjoy!
