Ecover question

So I got some Ecover and some Meyer's (in lemon verbena). I'm so nervous about using fabric softener How much do you use? What cycle do you put it in? Anything else I should know?? Thanks Mamas!

I do the same, but also add a couple of capfuls of hot water as the machine is filling so I know all the fabric softener will actually get into the risne cycle.

Re: Ecover question

Thank you. I have a totally ghetto washer that doesn't have a place to add it, and it doesn't have hot rinses! Grr!

I'm so excited to try this. I think Lemon Verbena is a totally manly scent

Re: Ecover question

I put a capful in the dispenser, and then a capful of water on my wash cycle.

You could probably use a Downey ball.
