I recently made a pair of slippers that I am going to felt and the directions for felting talk about using a detergent free of enzymes and optical bleach.

I don't know what this means. Is there a name brand detergent that someone can recommend to me that is free of enzymes and optical bleach? Something I don't have to order online, that I can just go purchase?

I use my Arm and Hammer laundry detergent, without problem.

I put in baking soda, but don't really know why!

I always wanted my own library but I didn't realize it would be all knitting books!

Use good old Ivory dish wash detergent, but you do not need a lot. A tablespoon is plenty.
