Re: Laundering Questions

A wet pail is what my mother used back in the day...she would fill the pail halfway up with water and a little bleach, then throw the wet dipes and swished/flushed poopies in until wash day. On wash days she would dump the whole thing in the washer, spin it out, then run one hot wash cycle.

A dry pail is when you throw the wet or rinsed out poopies in a pail with no water in it. I think most people are dry pailing it these days. I do keep a little 3 gallon bucket next to my toilet to soak a sprayed off poopy with a little Charlies soap for an hour or two then spray it out and drop it in the "dry" pail until wash day. It keeps staining down on my dipes.
