While I was looking at Living the Fruity Life, I found this recipe for a natural laundry washing solution.  I want to try it, but my laundromat has front loading washers, so I will have to tinker with it.

The recipe as it was Living the Fruity Life:
“Add 1/4 – 1/2 cup of sea salt to washer as water is filling and 1/4 cup of white distilled vinegar to fabric softener dispenser (could use downy ball), toss in the dirty laundry, and close the lid”

I am thinking that I should be able to dissolve the salt in the vinegar and pout it in the the detergent slot.  I’ll try that with a load of whites and see what happens.
Stay tuned.


  1. I would NOT recommend this to folks with septic tanks. The salt is going to build up in the tank, ruin or alter the bacteria and possibly corrode the concrete tank.
