I actually also use a smidge of washing soda with the nuts. They always got clean and smelled fine but we had this recurring rash problem that just wouldn't go away (and I'd tried all kinds of solutions including lots of different detergents). I added a little washing soda with the nuts (I think I read that Nakedbabytoes did this) and problem is gone. I never added it to clothing though I've only done a few loads with nuts and clothing. I plan on using the nuts regularly for all laundry and don't plan on using washing soda for anything but diapers. We'll see how that goes...
Nakebabytoes, it's quite obvious your responses had nothing to do with things getting off topic. You made it quite clear that you were upset about my so-called demand for proof and that you weren't going to indulge that demand. There's nothing helpful about telling someone you've just found the website they're looking for but are specifically not giving them any information (aka 'declining their invitation' to give more info - or 'proof' as you insist on calling it) and that they can 'google it to their heart's content'. That's supposed to be polite and helpful???
Look, all I can say is that I very obviously irritate the heck out of you. I've known that for a long time now. All I can see as reason for that is that I'm not afraid of saying so when I disagree with someone, that I'm long-winded and not exactly known for letting things go easily. Are those good qualities? I don't know, in many circumstances they are, in others they're not. I like to look at it as having strong convictions, good writting skills and being persistant. I'm sure you could come up with a few choice adjectives that aren't so flattering though... I know that these qualities/faults irritate people sometimes and that's obviously not something I like or that I'm proud of. Trying to keep a good balance between the good/bad parts of these qualities is something I'm working on but if I'm honest with myself (and you), they're just not likely to change all that much any time soon. You really do need to remember though that this is not personal in the least. I don't have it in for you and don't treat you any differently than anyone else no matter what you may think. I'm sorry if you've felt personally attacked during times when I've disagreed with you, that was certainly never my intention. Anyway, I don't know if this is making any sense at all but I did want to try to clear the air between us a little. Don't know if it helped but hopefully it didn't make things worse.
