Re: Whoaaa!

Does anyone else remember when adding lemi-shine (pretty sure that's what it was called) to your diaper laundry was a thing? This was about 3 years ago.

Re: Whoaaa!

I've used Cascade on regular laundry a couple times (it's great for getting out formula stains), but never diapers. Huh, you learn something new every day.

I suppose that *could* happen. It rinses cleanly from the laundry, but I have no clue how HE sensors work. The only HE machine I've ever owned, broke after a year of babying and only using HE Tide. I bought a standard top loader after that and its still going strong 18 months later. Point: I am sure that's possible, and I have no clue about HE machines. lol

Thanks for posting that! Good to know for me personally, that there is probably nothing to worry about as far as the diapers are concerned.

I never heard of that but it doesn't surprise me. I do remember using fish tank ammonia drops being a thing.

& Sports/Camping wash.

Fill tub with hot water. Run cap or two of cascade ( liquid works best) turn on jets. Our home inspector told us to do that when we bought our house. Gets all the gunk out and doesn't suds.

Just pointing out to others that this is to clean your jets in the tub. Not diapers.
