Re: Ways to wash (to be pinned)

I've recently started and only have done several loads myself. Nanny does most of the dipes (she's the one who got me into CD) and has been doing so for years. I have Happy Heiny Pockets and nanny has Tiny Tush Fitted.

Washing dipes:
Load is about 20-30 dipes every 2-3 days for 2 boys 1 1/2 years old.

1a Occiasional stain treat or soaking cycle, when needed.
1. Warm wash with 1/2 amount of soap (Generic Tide - Costco brand)
2. Warm rinse
3. Extra rinse cycle
3a. Extra spin cycle when hang dry
4. Dry medium heat (nothing extra - no dryer sheets) for cold or raining days 4a. On warm days - there has been days in the 70s in Nov in CA - we hang dry the dipes. In the summer the dipes would dry in an hour or so outside - faster or about the same if I used the dryer.
