Laundry Solutions Simplified

I live in a very rural area where we are on a well and septic system. I am a city girl, New Jersey, to be exact, and we were on city water and sewer. I never realized the difficulty, until recently, did not realize how well water can wreak havoc on our clothes. When we […]
