Cool Why do I have buildup?



I peeked in the machine last night for the cold eince cycle and there were a fair amount of bubbles in there Why do I have build up? I use Allens and Sport Wash.

My wash routine is:

Cold Wash- no detergent

Hot Wash- 1/2 capful Sportwash or 1.5 caps of Allens, 1/4c vinegar

Cold Rinse

Cold Rinse

Do I need to clean my washer?

could be a bit too much detergent. 2 whole capfuls total is a lot, considering Allen's is concentrated. Just make sure to do extra rinses to get that out.

Re: Why do I have buildup?

I only used two teaspoons of Allen's otherwise I get major bubbles. It's really concentrated. I do clean my washer on occasion. I think I read it on the Pin Stripes and Poka Dots? Sarah's I think?

I only use 1tbsp of Allens in a load of like 20 dipes...if my normal 10 dipes, I do 1.5tsp or less. Sounds like a little too much detergent.

OK, that cap is so tiny that I didn't think it could be too much

I'll cut back-thanks mamas!
