For all of you asking about the recipes to soap...there are tons of different ones. A lady at our little gathering did all the measuring/cooking so I don't know her amounts she used. When I made my own at home I used this recipe. If you want to use it on your cloth diapers, just eliminate the essential oils.
Homemade Dishwashing Soap:
Equal parts Borax and Washing Soda (both in laundry aisle at Walmart)
Mix together and put where you normally put your detergent
Fill the Rinse Aid with vinegar.
Just keep a gallon size Ziploc bag, or an old plastic container of the pre-mixed Borax and Washing Soda to make it easier each time you do dishes.
I made the BEST all purpose cleaner I have ever used from that same website I linked for the laundry soap. I absolutely LOVE it. I want to clean everything in my house with it.
