Maggie's Soap Nuts
"Soapnuts" are nature's laundry soap. They are the dried fruit of the Chinese Soapberry tree, which contain saponin, a natural cleaner used for thousands of years to clean clothes. These completely unprocessed nuts--used by people all over the world--release their soap when the shell comes in contact with water. You just drop a few nuts in a small cotton bag and place it in the washer with your items to be washed. I tried these and everything came out clean and soft. No fragrance, no residues. After several loads of wash (I got three loads from mine), you can just toss the remaining shells in the compost pile. Site also contains instructions for making a liquid cleaner from soap nuts that can be used for washing humans and pets, fruit and vegetables, spot treating laundry, hand washing delicates, cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, washing cars and plants, repelling pests, cleaning jewelry, and washing windows.

It is completely non-toxic and totally biodegradable in just 3 to 7 days. Ed gave me a sample. It it smells like nothing and it really works! "Begley's Best dissolves away grease, grime and dirt, quickly, safely and effortlessly. You can use it on any surface that is compatible with water, such as tile, showers, porcelain, counter tops and cupboards, linoleum, plastics, wood, leather, stainless steel, aluminum, chrome and colorfast fabrics...ideal for shampooing and spot-cleaning colorfast carpets and upholstery.

And it costs only 16 cents a load (if you buy the 5-gallon bucket, the price goes down to 10 cents a load--incuding shipping).

Chem-Dry
Carpet cleaning without chemicals. "The secret...is the millions of microscopic carbonating cleaning bubbles in our cleaner...The carbonating solutions penetrate deep into the base of the carpet, literally exploding dirt and grime off of the fiber's surface. Then, we use hot water extraction to lift the dirty particles to the surface where they are whisked away...Because it uses a fraction of the water compared to steam cleaning, and contains no soaps, detergents, solvents, enzymes, or other harsh chemicals, it can be used around your entire family, including your pets." I checked into this and it really is just carbonated water, as nontoxic as club soda.
