I always take the bag out of the box and put it in a small pet food container I picked up at walmart. The top is hinged at the back and opens fully so its easy to scoop out of.
pet food container > http://www.walmart.com/ip/Pet-Foo...b/14935913 Ive seen them in stores.
I prefer to keep it sealed because of where we live and where the laundry is located it gets awful humid and the detergent can clump. Twisting the liner closed is obnoxious.

Really dumb question.....
How do I open the box correctly? I never had powder detergent before and I want to make sure I open it correctly considering it'll last me months! Do you open the little flap along the perforations only? Should I just open the whole top flap and use a smaller container???

The Sears in my town is closing. Too bad as they have a lot of good deals that pop up on slickdeals often. Gonna miss having a Sears in town. Another sign of the times I guess.
I bought 2 of these at this price last year. Just started using the first box recently, so these should last me a looooong time.

To summarize, you can just show the confirmation e-mail from your smart phone

The people at my store are horribly slow and on the tracking thing they will show it complete when it isnt. This time they tried to stop me from logging in for pickup but I did anyway.

To save hassle I would probably call them first. Sears isnt always known for its forward thinking.

The majority of people (I was able to find a couple polls re this) wash their towels weekly.
If you want to wash more often that's up to you but its not nice to attack someone for being normal.
I am right there with you about doctors over prescribing antibiotics. I want to slap the people that run to the dr over every little sniffle begging for antibiotics. My family hasn't taken antibiotics for at least 5 yrs. We take apple cider vinegar daily and I get organic produce delivered to my door so we have plenty of produce in our diets. Its good you are making changes. Its amazing how much healthier you feel.
A am concerned for you though.You really shouldn't be having so many battles with skin infections. We live in a MRSA and ringworm area. I have sent employees home because of ringworm.
I also have one of the filthiest jobs you can think of, my husband and I work on payphones. Yup the nasty things on street corners primarily used by drug users. We have never been infected with any skin issues.
If you have reoccurring issues and it sounds like you are clean its likely coming from your washing machine. Vinegar has some antibacterial properties but the amount you would have to use to kill resistant bacteria is high and it may not even kill it at all. Dryers do not kill all bacteria, most but not all.
If you have a top loader, the water that sits in the pump is more than a front loader. Some top loaders use a lint trap in the pump of little fingers that collect particles that are never washed away so they just fester bacteria, mold and fungus.
If you dont want a new FL washer with sanitary feature then you should probably run a cycle of affresh washer tablets followed by a cycle of bleach. Bleach is the only thing that kills everything but it doesnt cut through the gunk that builds up in a washer so you have to remove the gunk first with affresh or other washing machine cleaner.
If it were me and I couldnt run a sanitary cycle and I was battling skin infections I would invest in some white towels and sheets and bleach them every wash.
We are on septic so that really wont work for us and that many washes a week with a top loader would cause it to fail sooner. Plus its bad for the environment. So I make sure any washer we have has a sanitary feature and our loads are as large as possible.
I do use vinegar and hydrogen peroxide to clean in the house. I also use steam, 15 seconds of steam will kill all the germs and is chemical free.
Good luck. That must be stressful having all those horrible skin issues.

Actually, no I, DON'T use triclosan/antibacterial products specifically because they disrupt natural healthy flora. I rarely use Lysol, and almost never use chlorine bleach. I use double-rinse cycles, and abstain from using fabric softeners besides white vinegar in the rinse cycle. I am aware of those mites, and because of them, I use clean towels every time I dry, wash make-up brushes frequently with safe cleaners and throw away my eye make-ups after 90 days from first use and never share with anyone. The rest of my make-up is thrown out 6 mos after opening if it isn't used up.
BUT- I DO believe in WASHING my towels, clothes, and sheets frequently because I like to keep things fresh. Rinsing fabrics with a surfactant and putting them through the dryer helps kill off a large majority of stuff. Molds, mites, mildews, etc, are NASTY when they are allowed to breed, and I have allergies that are aggravated by dust mites. Not to mention the body oils (which turn rancid) and sweat transferred to your clothes and towels that help feed the bacteria that causes the unpleasant "odor."
We, too, have had some serious CA MRSA issues in our family. I had to have emergency surgery on a spot in my back and almost died from one a couple years ago. My husband used to get boils every month, and was pouring antibiotics down his throat like mad every time I turned around. I finally fired our doctor and got a second opinion. My kids even got a couple spots. We (our new doctor and myself) believe that it is the over-use of antibiotics in GENERAL-in the food/cleaners/soaps, and from doctors wanting to feel like they "did something" for all these years when they blindly handed them out for viruses and ear infections, etc. Thanks to boosting our immune systems naturally by eating better, and WASHING OUR HANDS, as well as our sheets/pillowcases/towels and wiping surfaces with vinegar water and clean wash clothes regularly, we have far fewer incidents with not only MRSA infections now, but also thrush and yeast infections, too. Staph is a natural bacteria everyone carries in their mucus. So is candida. The problem comes from touching surfaces after someone has gotten mucus on their hand, then transfers it to a break in the skin. The weak immune system allows it to over-run, and it is resistant to medications from the over-exposure and mutation.
It's a CLEANLINESS issue! I will still hold by my laundry habits and original statements.

Dead skin cells wont hurt you. To make you even more paranoid, your body, in particular your face is covered with mites that live in your hair follicles. There is even a special mite that lives in your eyelash follicles its kind of wormy looking.
You are probably one of those people that work hard to poison yourselves and your family with all the antibacterial chemicals. Lysol and triclosan are the worst.
I had close friend get MRSA, the doctor told her had she not killed all the good bacteria on her body she wouldn't have gotten it. It ate some of her face and part of her sinus cavity.
