Re: Finally Tricked My Washer!

I am such a dummy because I just realized my washer has a no spin option- now instead of running to turn it off before the spin starts I can choose the no spin beforehand.

I am so excited to smell my kids' diapers in the morning to see if my new wash routine got rid of the ammonia!

Re: Finally Tricked My Washer!

Yeah I do a soak cycle now and just let the water drain then start the heavy wash I actually do this with towels now too. I was wondering why our bath towels wouldn't come out clean, so I stopped a heavy wash mid cycle and saw them there half out of the water! So I soak them too to make them all heavy so the stupid thing uses the right amount of water.
