I think I might give it a try. We have city sewer so I don't have to worry about septic issues. It seems to have less additives and would be much cheaper to make than buy. I would love to have a HE machine, my washer is older than my youngest daughter, and she is 18 now!

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
I honestly can't see a reason to worry about it even if you had a septic system. We have a cesspool that was grandfathered when we bought the house. We'll have to replace it if/when we sell the property, but I haven't had any problems. We have elm trees all around the "pit" and they haven't suffered. Actually, the grass there is growing better than it did before.

The only complaint I have heard is they can get "stinky" if left closed. I always leave my oldie but goodie open when empty. We are starting to see an issue with the old gal, when washing towels or heavy loads and it stops, when you remove the first few items it will try to spin some more. Not sure if it is the weight or the dial that is the problem. Youngest daughter always seems to forget to press in the dial before she turns it.

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
SO,
I started making it earlier this year and it works well. Just dont leave wet clothes sit too long as their is no fragrance. Wish it actually smelled like the Fels Napta bar though. You get a lot for your money!
The last batch I did I thought I would experiment and add 1 cup of Oxyclean. Wont be doing that again. Going back to the original recipe and will be making it this weekend!!!

I still have a top loader, but my daughter has a front loader. She hasn't had any trouble with it getting stinky. We had one 20 some years ago in Holland, and it would get a little stinky. It wouldn't drain as well as they do now.

It sounds like you might have to replace it soon, or call the repairman.

Yeah, don't remember what I read now, but it surprised me that some weren't happy with theirs. I always leave mine open when not being used, too.

I'd sure hate to have another one though if I had one as special as yours. With each load you put in, you could think back on all the memories. 8) Hope yours makes it for a long, long time. Longer time. LOL.

Due to permabans and the theft of my paid for acct. I have not been able to read nor post for some time...maybe this website has been posted...
[link to crockpot365.blogspot.ca]
But my fiance and I are doing it for 6 months...nothing but crock pot dishes, we bought ours for 10 at a yard sale and are getting a larger one. Saves lots of money on electricity, and saves tonnes of time that would be better suited to growing/raising more things.
Cheers ya'll
great thread now that I can read it again. I'm taking notes, I sure hope you are as well...like on paper notes!

No, they most certainly don't make things the way they used to. With repair, it would probably still outlast any new machine you'd buy!

Thanks for the heads up on Kyron. Darn, I missed it but will look for it and hope it can be found somewhere. Appreciate it. Hope it makes someone somewhere sweat a little more. Poor little guy.

 Quoting: Texan Buckeye


LOL
I seemed to have a chemical reaction and overflow. Maybe my pot was too small. Anyways, the Oxyclean clumped up and it never gelled. It was like white clumps in liquid and there was no real smell to it. Normally you can smell the aroma of the Fels Naptha soap prior to washing. I wonder though if you make it in poweder form if it wouldn't be an issue.

I make it all the time and I love it. I am on septic and have a front loader. I have used it about 2 yrs now.

I put some fragrance oil that I buy just for laundry, (they make all the laundry scents, downy, gain, etc. ) It cost 15 bucks for 16 oz and I use about 3 oz in 2.5 gallons.


The other thing I do is buy unscented inexpensive hair conditioner from sally beauty supply. Its about 7 bucks for a gallon, you mix one part conditioner and two parts water and you have fabric softener. (you could get scented if your detergent isnt scented) Thats 3 gal of softener for 7 bucks.

I miss real grass! We did get a small patch to re-seed in the yard this summer. We probably should buy stock in a grass seed company, though. It'd be cheaper than buying all the seed we need after 2 years of drought!

Buffalo grass is a feed grass down here. There are a few patches of it left from the previous owners. It grows really fast and tall. Great if you live at the little house on the prairie!

This is so cute. Our dog is getting old (she is 11 or 12, not really sure since we were her 3rd home). I told hubby it was getting hard for her to jump on and off the bed so I suggested he build some stairs. He said no stairs, we should get her a mini trampoline!

I think they are having a party for me here at the house, my guess is its saturday night.

My daughter bought me a night at a hotel at the beach on Friday, and my husband said lets make two days out of it and not come home till the late afternoon and stop for dinner. Then the give away is that he has been cleaning the back yard up for the last two weeks.
