    Sure. I'll post over in food and lifestyle. Probably later today or tomorrow. Working from a smart phone. When I have laptop access again. I'll post. It's super easy, very inexpensive and they work well.

    I'm looking forward to the detergent recipes, too sensitive skin and the environment are concerns, as are the higher prices we've been paying for these products with a shorter, simpler ingredient list. Thanks in advance, MRD.

    Granny Clampett also made her own soaps, didn't she?? Out back by the "see-mint" pond!

    Just kidding, and being silly, so don't go getting all up in arms, and taking it seriously!!

    I dunno - I kinda liked her style - granny dress with $hit-kickin' boots, and a little hat with netting bobbing around it.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Just dropped in, and would like to make a comment on those little "grease spots" on clothes coming out of the dryer!

    That used to be a problem for me, and it would drive me crazy having to see T-shirt favorites have to go to the "working shirt" end of the closets! and I used dryer sheets most of the time, but I've found that's not the cause (I think not, anyway).

    I think they're really grease stains, but so subtle we don't notice them until they've spread in the wash. There is no washing them out - except by using Carbona Stain Devils. Someone gave me a set years ago, and I keep them by the washer/dryer. There are a total of 9 formulas, specific for different stain types - they've saved my clothes, comforters, sheets SO many times, I can even count!

    There's a formula for blood, cooking oils, petroleum-based oils, gum, makeup, grass stains, ink, etc. They really do work.

    When I get a t-shirt out of the dryer with those little grease stains, I ask myself if this person would probably have eaten something and dribbled a bit or worked in his shop (hubby)? I drop the Stain Devil for food grease on the spots and rewash. Nine times out of ten it comes out clean. If not, I retreat with the petroleum It -based oil Stain Devil and wash again - that usually works, sometimes on those I have to do it twice. Only once in the last 10 years or so since using them have I had a situation where nothing worked (I think it was when I was picking cherries and used my shirt to help hold them). Maybe it is from the machine, but I've noticed them whether or not I used dryer sheets.

    I can't find them in stores anymore, but you can get them online. They're about $2.50 to $3 per bottle, a bit less in a set - but it's worth it so save your better clothes! Good luck!

    The laptop is in the shop. It's hard for me to copy and paste using my phone. I'll post the detergent recipes on Thursday when I'm due to have it back.
