Thanks to Catherine for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Michael started back to work as a lube mechanic last week, so I went out and got some of the washing soda. Our hypo-allergenic soap just wouldn't do it for his greasy uniforms.

This is the first time I've tried it, and was frankly surprised. I am all out of our soap and have just been washing in water with 3 of those laundry disks in the machine (which don't work - don't waste your money on them!) Anyhow, a lot of our things have gotten hard over the years and I just thought it was because they were old.

However, with just a couple of tbsp. of washing soda and nothing else, our clothes are softening up! Even my menstrual pads - which I was seriously thinking of replacing because they had gotten so hard and uncomfortable, though still in good condition after 6 years!

Oh, and neither Josh or I reacted to it! A very important factor!!
