View Full Version : dish/laundry soap
04-13-2008, 09:54 PM
I am looking into switching to a more enviromentally friendly dish soap and laundry soap. I currently use the Costco brand dishsoap and I am pretty sure that it is not "green". As for my laundry soap I make my own. I use Phelp Naptha soap, Arm and Hammer laundry soap and Borax. I am also pretty sure this isn't to "green" either. If the bottle says biodegradable is that enough or does it also have to say nontoxic. What does everyone else use? Any advice and/ or info would be greatly appreciated.
