Dr Oz: Michelle Duggar Weight Watchers Success

Dr. Oz wondered how Michelle Duggar managed to lose the weight after so many pregnancies, which he estimated to be over 400 pounds.

She told Dr. Oz the key to her success was making healthy choices and having good portion control, but the big difference came when she decided to try the Weight Watchers Program.

    The recipe given makes 4+ cups of concentrate. How much should it be diluted to make 10 gallons. How much is used per washer load. I have a front loader and requires high efficiency detergent. Is it agreeable as a ‘high efficiency’ product? Thanks, Diane

    Arm & Hammer makes washing soda. Usual on the top shelf in the detergent section of the store. I have been making this for several years an never had a problem. It works great in my HE Front load machine. One batch of this goes a long way for the average family. I add water and shake it up until it is the right consistency to dispense in a detergent dispenser jug that I saved. Diluted that way I use about 1/3 C. per load. You have to shake it each time you use it.

    For laundry detergent, I use:
    2 cups borax (I think about $4 for big box, so will last you a long time)
    2 cups Arm & Hammer Washing Soda (or bake Baking Soda @ 400 degrees for 30 minutes)
    1 cup Oxy-Clean (the $1 generic from Dollar Tree)
    1 bar Fels Naptha laundry bar (found at Wal-mart= about $1)
    — Finely Grate Fels Naptha bar. Add remaining ingredients; blend well. Even though you smell something now, your clothes will be unscented and terrific to those with irritations.
    — Use about 2 tablespoons in washer. (Mine is a front-end, HE washer.)
    – Opt: For softener, use white vinegar. Will not leave scent. I’ve used to extend Downy!
    – TIP: If you want scent, ADD it: could be a couple drops of essential oil; Downy Unstoppables, Scentsy packs (I haven’t tried – expensive), or Purex Crystals. When I definitely want the scent to last, I hang clothes after washing instead of drying in dryer.
    I like using powder instead of bucket. Another option is to mix together 2 tbsp powder with 1 cup warm water, then add to washer. I find I don’t need this, though.
