  1. Your recipes sound wonderful. My family loves desserts of all kinds.

    You asked about my washing detergent and I couldn't find where to reply so I am doing so on here. Yes, it works great in my HE problems. It also takes care of that "man stink" (so funny) and it takes great care of my softball playing, sliding into the bases daughter. (red dirt and stink comes out) I have not had any problem with musty odors that I know of. Good question, though. Hope it works for you if your try it.


I love comments and feedback :)
