This » Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Geranium Laundry Detergent

Confession: I am one of those people who does not do laundry.  Like, ever.  I'm the buy-more-socks-and-underwear girl.  The my-jeans-can-walk-on-their-own girl.  The girl-sitting-at-the-back-of-the-classroom-wearing-her-high-school-class-t-shirt-because-it's-the-last-clean-thing-in-her-closet-and-so-what-if-it's-from-the-'90s-and-this-is-grad-school?  Ahem.  Sorry.  I got carried away on that last one.  But you get the point.
I do, however, hand wash.  Instead of laundry.  Cheaper, less schlepping, no risk of anyone taking your stuff out and dumping it on the floor of the dorm basement, etc.  Often instead of dry cleaning as well.  All my wool/cashmere/mohair/cotton knits, all of my cotton shirting, almost everything that I've managed to drip coffee on: into the sink.*  With this, my favorite detergent.  Then wrap in towels or lay flat to dry, and voilà: clean clothes.
It's so easy, I can do it in my sleep.  And I do.

*Not silk, not lined tweed-type blazers.  Not anything I'm worried I'll ruin.  But just about everything else, really.

  1. Bless you for being willing to do hand washes. I haven't the time, nor am I willing to sacrifice my soft hands to do such chores!
