Anyone have a recipe they like for laundry detergent, body wash, or shampoo?

I'm trying to be more green this year (and save money!) :-D

I could use one for floor cleaner if someone has one.

I do a mixture of vinegar and water to clean almost everything. Our hardwood floors, mirrors, countertops, etc. I love it! Plus I can use it with Teddy around since it isn't full of dangerous chemicals. If you do a google search you can find the right ratios I just do it by feel. Just heard a huge crash- gotta go!

P.S. I am pretty sure you can also use vinegar as a homemade fabric softener.

I can't give a personal testimony, but I've been thinking of trying the laundry soap described here: http://www.soulemama.com/soulemama/2010/05/on-the-laundry-line.html

This is from my all time favorite blog!

I second the vinegar and water. We use that on pretty much everything as well. I also use steam, which cleans and sanitize without chemicals.
