Thanks!
There were a bunch of cleaning supply recipes in the March All You magazine.

My SIL had a repairman tell her this that the borax in homemade soap wears out the parts in a washing machine, I think he was talking specifically about front loaders (although I don't know why it wouldn't pertain to all types of washing machines). Has anyone heard that?

I just took a look at what was on the website. Thanks for letting me know about that site.
I also ended up reading some of the comments that were on that site from the "make your own cleaning solutions".... and I know that making your own stuff is definitely not for everyone....a lot of people did not catch the "bug" of doing it, they didn't feel that it wa, but boy after reading those....it's really not for everyone.....some really feel that it's not worth their time w/ money or for the degree that it works. Oh well....to each their own. I'm not sure what is going to come about w/ my switching to making cleaning and beauty products, but I do know that for right now I am enjoying it and I am learning a lot!

Sorry that I don't have a good response for you on your question.

I'm not sure how they are built and why they would have that different of
parts in it that it would get worn out before a regular washer would.

I do know that it is asked over and over and over if homemade laundry detergent is safe, and before HE front loaders haven't been around for too long....no one really has a good answer other than "well, I've been using it for years and I've never had a problem, so it must be safe."

I just know it's a common question, but I haven't heard a professional explanation on it. Hopefully someone can elaborate on that for us.

I need an update on DIY laundry soap. I've made the No-grate "Jillee" laundry soap and one batch of dry. I liked the laundry soap until I washed some workout clothes of my husbands. They still smelled awful. I'm now rewashing with the powdered soap to see if it's any better. Have any of you found a good solution to this problem? Jillee recommends adding Downy Unstoppables to your DIY soap. Anyone?

I found this recipe and am considering it. It has extra washing soda and added vinegar. (Or should I just go buy something I know works?)

INGREDIENTS
1 bar of soap (I use Ivory)
1 cup Borax
2 cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
1 cup White Vinegar
2 gallon pot
funnel
storage container(s)

HOW TO
1. grate soap into pot
2. fill 1 gallon jug with water and pour into pot with soap. Cook until soap dissolves
3. Add Borax and Washing Soda
4. Bring to a boil.
5. Turn off heat. Add another 1 gallon of cold water and the white vinegar. Stir well. It will coagulate
6. pour into container(s)
