As I mentioned recently, I made my own detergent a few days ago and I bought an indoor drying rack since it's been a very wet Spring. When I couldn't find any quarters to do a load of laundry, I decided to take a page out of No Impact Man's book and toss the clothes in the tub. Using 2-3 inches of cold water with a 1/4 cup of detergent I letting the clothes soak and then stomp around with my bare feet in the water to agitate the laundry. So far I've done two loads, saving $5 already. And by not using warm water or a dryer, I have made laundry an entirely electricity free chore (not to mention the extra exercise I get). I'm hoping to get a hold of a washboard to help scrub out the dirt from my socks.
What are you doing to "regress"?
