How many loads of laundry do you do per day/week? Right now, I'm averaging about three loads per day, maybe 4. Of course we're getting settled, hopefully that will slack off some. Does it REALLY pay to make your own washing detergent, we use the "Sun" brand, got 200 oz/52 load bottle yesterday for $3/and change. I don't see how that could be beat but feel free to educate me...LOL.
