Just made a great find! I found the Nature's Head composting toilet, used (but never used) for $500 and they said they would hold it until next Friday!! Yay!!!!

I was looking at water heaters the other day and Atwood makes an on demand water heater. It's propane and electric. Cost about $850 at Camping World. Have you found one cheaper than that? or were you talking about the laundry system? I want one as I'm with you I can't see letting the propane go all day.

Hi,
What's your laundry detergent recipe? I heard it was not that complicated and cheap.

Hi Bro, Workin on the oldest firefighter in the county, maybe I am. They don't let me play with the hoses anymore but I still am an EMT.

I am somewhat up in the air now about which way to go. An on demand system would allow me an unbroken, carefree shower at times but I would suffer from calcium buildup that will ultimately make it a paperweight. If I add a filter and a water softener it will help with this. All that said, nobody has got up and said, "I love my in demand water heater!"

The electric start tanked water heater is the other option but will take 15 minutes to be ready and most likely will require an on/off "Navy" shower in order to maintain a useful amount of hot water.

For the $300 I am just tempted to try the on demand system to see what happens and do the flushes and routine maintenance.

My laundry system is the WonderWash and the NinaSoft laundry spinner. This system is pretty awesome and with a couple of tricks and an occasional extended soak will handle all your laundry needs.

For what it's worth, we have the Precision Temp 500 tankless water heater, and we love it.

Maybe you're referring to the recipe I posted about.

Love it, smells nice, and does a great job. I use hot water only for sheets and dishcloths, and this removes all the usual coffee and other food stains. I liked this recipe because of the OxyClean, which I am a big fan of.

The BEST Homemade Laundry Detergent, and Why - Ask Anna

I did not add the orange oil, as the soap has a nice, fresh scent without it.

In our front loader, I use 2-3 tablespoons per load, depending on how large the load is.

You're welcome! We love it too.

Have to confess, tho, that we are not hauling a container of this with us on the road. Back to Tide Pods until we get home.

When we get home, back to Olympia, I'll give this a try but we won't be home for several months now.

Enjoying the sun in Tucson area
