Ever give up on getting the suds out????

I am sick of washing!!! There is the tiniest amount of bubbles on top, and I can't get rid of them no matter how many hot washes I have done . I am not having any stink or absorbancy issues, so I am tempted to just stop worrying.

I remember reading something that said it may be the washer w/ build up, so if I do give up I will chalk those bubbles up to that, lol.

Also, can I use sportwash on every diaper load? or should I use a "clothing" type detergent?

There are usually some bubbles in my rinse cycle but I ignore it. I haven't had any issues yet. Water bubbles naturally, right lol?

See, that's what I am thinking. Are they just agitation bubbles from the water?

Oh, and my diapers generally absorb water right away, but they are cotton velour topped and sherpa if that makes a difference.

My water bubbles naturally at least

If you don't have stink or absorbance problems... I don't think there are any problems..

You can use it on every load. I use sensi clean which is the same thing - I use 1/2 an oz - it says to use 1 oz.

If you wanted to be anal, you could try vinegar in the rinse...

Thanks! I am going to start using that until I order some Allen's.

I would put vinegar in the rinse cycle, but I can't handle the diapers smelling like it! Hot vinegar diapers right out of the dryer... no way, lol.

I may try it and then rinse a few times after though... because it would just be too easy to be content with the stash.
