I'm applying gray water by putting the gray water in a plastic container (old cat sand container) that has a small hole drilled near the bottom. The water slowly leaks out. The container works like a portable drip emitter. I have six of these portable 'drip emitters'. I've been using plant safe soaps an laundry products, so far results have been good.

John... sounds like you are doing it right... the "portable leaky" container as dripper technique is a great way to utilize gray water, especially in remote parts of your garden... and the use of the "plant safe" laundry soaps should significantly help to mitigate the potential of various salts in regular soaps... glad to hear of successful use of gray water in the garden... at the rate we're going water-wise, it's going to be the new "normal"
