JaneeZee, can you clarify if the pub dwellers want to see the TMX in action with food or just how you made the washing powder ??? ??? ???

JD, I was sitting with 6 girls, 3 of who have seen the Thermomix & 3 who haven't .  I mentioned I had made the laundry detergent "in the machine" & the 3 who have seen the machine took off telling the others how wonderful it is (even though they haven't got one "yet").  I brought out a brochure, they said they were interested in seeing it & I - spur of the moment - said "Well what are you doing Thursday evening - come to my place!" So they are expecting food not laundry delights.  :)

JaneeZee, after reading your posts, I thought I'd try the powder too and it seems pretty good!  I found Lectric Soda crystals in Coles, Borax (Hovex brand) in Bunnings and used the Velvet soap.  Made two lots and put in decor tub.  Have washed 3 loads with it today and prob only need half to one scoop per load.  Seems it will be pretty economical and less fiddly to make than the foam.

If you don't find it with cleaning chemicals, try the aisle near the paint desk that has other chemicals. Not strippers, but other things. That's where I found my caustic soda (for regular bar soap) after 3 aisles and 2 visits. :P

Hey that's what men do - wander around looking, looking, looking - but NEVER ask.  They are actually really good on the service desk  ;) ;)
