Country Save and wash question

We use Country Save with a top load high efficiency machine in hard water. Any idea how many scoops (or how much of a scoop) to use?

Also, does this sound right for getting diapers clean...
• cold rinse with regular spin
• cold rinse with no spin (to get the diapers heavier to pull in more water for the wash)
• hot wash with detergent adding the deep clean and extra rinse function
• cold rinse with regular spin

Thanks for any advice!

Re: Country Save and wash question

Country Save recommends that you portion the detergent to match the amount of water you're using. So I think the main question is whether it uses as little water as a front loading HE, or whether it's more similar to a regular top loader.

My *guess* is that you'd portion the detergent more like a top loader. This odd sounding idea is because an HE top loader with a capacity of 4.7 cubic feet uses less water than a regular top loader with a capacity of 4.7 cubic feet. BUT a normal top loader is what ... about 3 cubic feet?

You might contact Country Save and ask them, or consult your manual, and see if it says to add a "front loader HE" dose or a "top loader" dose.

I also understand that using the "delicate" or "hand wash" setting puts more water in.
