Exclamation Allens users

How much do you use for a large load? The bottle says 1/8c for regular loads, which means I have to use half of that, correct? What measurement do you use?

PS-HOORAY for Fuzzi Bunz store! I ordered this on Friday afternoon and it already came today!!

I use the measument my box came with and put half of the recommended amount. I do an extra rinse.

I also alternate Allen's with Charlie's Soap. Both work great in my front loader.

I think I read on some CD vendor's site that with Allen's, you have to use the recommended dose.

HTH!

Re: Allens users

I have a front loader so that will make things differnent if you have a top loader but I use 1 tsp.

Why don't you pick an amount to start with, like a TBSp and see how it goes. Add more and see if it made a difference the next load.

Better to start w/too little than too much.

Re: Allens users

I've been wanting to try Allen's but haven't yet. Should I get the powder or the liquid?

I use the powder, 1/2 scoop no matter what size load, but I onyl have 12 dipes/child so our biggest load is only a med. For an really large load I would probably use 3/4 scoop and do an extra rinse just to be safe.
