This really IS laundry detergent -- it's not food. Friends of mine wanted to cheapen their grocery bill AND eliminate some of the allergic reactions to the sale-of-the-week detergents, so they researched how to make their own laundry detergent. For whatever reason, Dial and Dove don't seem to work very well. . .
