Regarding our laundry detergent used for the first time yesterday, the washing came out clean. It was a dark wash so will report if a pale wash comes out the same. These clothes were not very dirty so again, will have to wait and see. I have now got some distilled white vinegar for using as a conditioner. Meanwhile, our bottles of mucus are lurking underneath the sink. They are now so thick that when we turn the bottles upside down, they don't move. Should be interesting the next time it is used.
