Baking soda is useful added too, and super-cheap. I use washing soda, but a big box of that costs a lot more than baking soda. Baking soda is similar to though not as powerful as washing soda. If you go with dish soap, you might add some baking soda to the wash, also. I would do one round of laundry with nothing then try this combo for the next round--soon you'll have survived that couple weeks with almost nothing spent on laundry products.
