Re: washing soda & simple green

I use it every time. I've had no stink issues, I've had repelling but I don't think its from the sg and ws I think its from drying them in the dryer and ti having fabric softner residue and we ahve super hard water.

but what I do is a pre rinse or soak (we are catchign all our poos now so I don't ahve to soak as much) I put in 1/4 cup ws and 5 squirts of sg in on the heavy cycle and then do one extra rinse. Sometimes I will put in some vinigar and sometimes I will put in some Calgon but again I have super super hard water. But that is it. Never any stink issues at all.

I use 1/4c washing soda and 10 squirts of simple green on the largest load size. I also presoak dipes first on cold. I also use calgon every few washes to strip dipes & havent had any issues yet.

If there are lots of really raunchy poopies, I'll do a cold soak for a little while just to loosen things up. Then run a hot wash/cold rinse with 1/4 cup of washing soda and 4-5 squirts of simple green. Sometimes I run an extra cold rinse just to be sure but I've never had any problems...I think I just do that because everyone else seems to do an extra rinse. I use the ws/sg every load. Good luck!
