Hi Richie, just water, in the summer it’s rain water, in the winter it’s well water, I haven’t seen any difference between the two. I do use dish soap occasionally,usually on jeans , if i get them really dirty….. like scooting on my butt in the garden to weed,, it’s tough on the knees as we get older. So then it requires a little extra help.

Update to washing clothes without soap. Ok… so its been severals years since it posted this original post, wow time sure flies! Here’s what i have been doing since January 2022, no soap at all….. i put the clothes in and slosh them around for about 3 minutes, theni let them soak for 20-30 minutes and then they wash for 15 minutes . I have to say they are no dirtier then when i was washing at the laundromat and no soap so the grey water can go directly on the garden in the summer. No rinsing means less hauling of water, summers are easier as we use rain water. Hope this update helps someone, it feels really weird not to use soap, we, e been programed that clothes have to have detergents to be clean, and i,m sure there will be some messes that will require a bit of soap now and again, but so far i,m thrilled with the results.  Less water, no money spent on detergents,  that a win win in my book

We go barefoot most of the summer, does anyone have an idea for a foot wash station that doesn't, require a hose and running water. We seem to track in A LOT of dirt and debri , like grass. Our grass will stay wet till noon most days so our feet are wet,and tend to pick up a lot of stuff
