You thought you had enough laundry soap to get you to the end of the week, but you made a gross miscalculation. Here’s what to do…
In an emergency, when you must do a wash and you don’t have any laundry detergent (or baking soda), use shampoo…that is, if you have shampoo. About one-third cup will do a full load.
In case you were wondering, dishwashing liquid is not a good substitute for laundry detergent. Washing machines and dishwashing soaps both vary in strength…just a small squirt could create enough suds to float the Titanic! (OK, that was an exaggeration.)
