8forus - How much vinegar do you use? Have you had any issues with fading using the vinegar? It's something I have been thinking about starting to do for a while now and just don't know where to start. I'm assuming you just put it in the fabric softener dispenser on the washing machine? (I haven't had my front load washer for very long, so still trying to figure some things out.)

I have a feeling I will be in the minority here! For frugal reasons, and environmental reasons I hand wash our clothes, with homemade detergent and hang them to dry.

Approximately how many loads of laundry do you do each week? I try to wash "one load" per day. Some days if I am behind I will do one in the early morning, and another late at night to get "two loads" in one day done.
What kind of detergent do you use? I make my own detergent out of borax, washing soda, baking soda, and fels naptha.
Do you use fabric softener or dryer sheets? No.
Do you use bleach? If needed on whites, and cleaning rags.
Do you have a front load or top load washer? Neither.
Do you dry your clothes in a dryer or hang them to dry? We hang ours to dry. Outdoors in summer, and indoors with fans in winter.

I just fill the fabric softener dispenser on the washing machine with the vinegar. I have had no problems with fading or smell. Hope that helps!

And if it weren't for my husband I would be doing the exact same thing! I'm moving in your direction - all I gotta do is get rid of the machines!
