When I have no plans for my days off, I usually just start my day off with the green goodie and go from there; clean the house, organize, file papers and pay bills, budget for the following week, and do laundry.
I just found these soap nuts from our local eco-store and so far been using them to wash colors and they're working just fine. Haven't tried on whites yet. You just put 3-4 nuts in the bag that comes with the package and toss it in the washer. Use them as long as they feel slippery. I don't know how much more natural can you go. Soap nuts are the dried fruit of the Chinese Soapberry tree. They contain saponin, a natural cleaner used for thousands of years to clean clothes, just like the plants used by Native Americans for washing. Pretty awesome.
If you like the laundry room vibe you can just sit down here and enjoy the spinning. 
Even our laundry room is in the basement there's multiple glass block windows so it gets great light.
