High Effeciecy Laundry Deterergent Ingredients In Order Of Listing (Equator Brand) 1. SODIUM CARBONATE (washing soda) 2.SODIUM SULFATE (What is This an Analog To?) 3. SODIUM bORAX (Obviously- 20 mule Team Borax) 4. Sodium Alkyl aryl sulfonate (?) Is this something found in shampoos) 5. Linear acohol ethoxylate (?????) 6. Coconut diethanolamide (Ok, essential cocnut oil, maybe?) Soapmakers and chemists- You are more than welcome to translate into regular speech! So I have in the past made the homemade washing detergent. But this HE stuff is a challenge. I have the borax and the washing soda. Wa thinking about shaving a bar of coconut castile soap into it also, BUT WHAT is SODIUM SULFATE? Is that "Flowers" of Sulfur? Should have that from my hiking days as a leftover- somewhere. The equator HE detergent costs $25 a box. Each box lasts about a year - longer in my case - but that is why I'm interested in seeing if this can be done homemade.
