This was the batch I made a few months ago before you shake it up and after.
home-made did better on the mustard again, they
did similar on the dirt, brand name did much better on the grass.
For me, with the price difference, I'm sticking with home-made detergent now. If I get a stain, I'll pre-treat it; and it will still cost a lot less. :) I've been using it for a few months now, and it has been working well.
(Note, washing soda gets hard in the box after a while, after you open it, so I'm going to try storing it in an air-tight container this time.)
