We recently bought a front load washer (LG) for the energy efficiency and water saving features (as well as it was too hard for me to get heavy wet clothes out of the top loader). So far it’s great. There is a bit of a learning curve regarding how much soap to use etc but we’re getting used to it.
My question is about adding things to the laundry. We have very hard water here so I’d like to add some baking soda or washing soda with my liquid detergent. I’d also like to try borax. But I don’t know where to put it!
(I already add some vinegar into the fabric softener dispenser…)
The instructions on the washing soda say to add it to the water in the machine, but that won’t work with a front load. It also says to disolve it in hot water if doing a cold water wash and, again, add it to the water. What do I do? My dispensers aren’t big enough to add the dissolved washing soda in with my liquid detergent…
I hope someone here is very experienced with their front loader and can help me out!
