scent wash in front load washers

Recommended Posts

Really?!? I'll have to check it out.

I posted this kind of hastily last night cause I was worried about "over-sudsing" my washer. I don't even know if it matters that much, but I was just curious if anyone else had pondered it or if people just treat it the same.

I know the scent wash isn't super sudsy super wash or anything, but I don't want to cause any problems. Plus we have softened water so the bubbles really get going.

I have a front load washer and find it is a nightmare to keep the bacteria healthy. The manufacturer failed to design an appropriate are circulation method. On a top loader there was no need to wory about water proofing the gasket and even if you shut the lid the tub dries out. If you shut the door on a front loader the tub can never dry and stinks in a hurry.

All the warnings that come with the washer about recommended soap are to combat this fundamental flaw in frontloaders. I leave the door on mine open all the time I'm not using it.

There are many products that kill the unwanted bacteria and I laugh every time I see a new product that has a picture of a front loader on the bottle.

It's a big problem. If you have not experienced it yet don't mess with the mix of soaps you are using now and count yourself lucky because once the culture grows it's next to impossible to get rid of- and the manufacrurer will blame you(not the design) for introduceing a soap that feeds the culture.

hanso, we always leave the door open and the soap tray open on our washer for that very reason. It was recommended that we use the "cleaner" tabs once a month, but so far we haven't done that.

Andy, one could always hand wash the clothes in a bigger laundry tub or bath tub. Then let then hang dry and pack them away in a sealed container.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
