Another "stupid" question from a newbie <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"><br><br>
When people talk about washing their dipes w/ Simple Green, are they talking about the "cleaner" that you spray on counter tops & stuff? Or does Simple Green make a laundry detergent?<br><br>
Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

yes, I used a small amount when I was stripping my diapers. Apparently degreasers work well for that.

Wow, that's so great! P.S. My cousin's middle name is Johannes! We are Dutch by decent (sp?) & it's a family name. I think Duncan Johann sounds great!

Did you get the recipe for teh Simple Green and Washing Soda stuff? I think it's 1/4 cup Washing Soda and 1 Tablespoon Simple Green but I could be wrong...

No I don't have it (though I might have skimmed over it). Was it in a MDC post or somewhere else? Thanks again!

<div style="font-style:italic;">Did it mention that they adjusted the amount of Simple Green down to 1tbls?</div>

It does later in the thread. Sounds like 1/4 washing soda & 1 tbls Simple Green is the way to go?
