When we took our 2 month trip last summer, I brought along Purex Complete 3-in -1 laundry sheets. They have detergent, fabric softener and anti-static all in one sheet. They come in a plastic dispenser-20 sheets. Easy to store and use. Just drop the sheet in the washer and put it in the dryer. Works well.
Thanks for writing to me and where do you get these sheets? It sounds like a fabulous alternative!
