    How would you use washing soda? I've never done anything like that before...

    Well, I don't know how others use theirs, but I use about half a tea cup full and put it in the drawer where the washing powder normally goes) add some warm/hot water from the kettle to flush it into the machine ( I know the water from the machine would normally take it, but this way it doesn't leave any lumps behind!)

    That's it!

    Some people may use less soda, but as it's the only thing I use I tend to be a bit more generous, it is cheap and I find it works for me.

    If I am washing my whites and want them brighter, I add a little more than normal and I add 30 mls of stardrops, this seems to be very effective.

    As OP said there is tons of laundry info on the OS forum.
    BTW it is going up in price and price does vary from supermarket to Wilkies, I got some the other week and it was actually slightly cheaper at Morrisons! but you need to know your prices as I have seen a difference of 30 p or more per bag!!!
