Re: Frigidaire Affinity frontload washer: how to wash cd's in it

I have a Fridgidaire Affinity. I would avoid using the sanitize cycle because it gets too hot for PUL and elastic. I start with a warm Delicate cycle with NO spin. I usually put some bac-out and a tbsp. of detergent in that cycle. I also add extra water through the water dispenser during each cycle, usually 1-2 gallons. The next cycle I use Heavy Duty with hot water & 2 tbsp. of detergent. (You can add an extra rinse here but I like being able to add more water so I do that in a seperate cycle.) To do my final rinse I use a cold Delicate cycle. Or if I need something quicker, I will do the spin- extra rinse option. But I always add more water.

I have tried a billion detergents it seems and the best I have found is Gain. We have hard water and it works well for us. I use 1 tbsp. in the prewash and 2 tbsp. in the main wash. I know that doesn't seem like much but that amount cleans the diapers and is easy to rinse out.

Let me know if you have any other questions!!
