I tried to include a link to a New York Times article about using less detergent, but it made me sign in and stuff and I was not into that, so I thought I would just tell you about it today. Then I'll stop writing about dryers because, honestly, I can't believe I've written about them this much.
Okay, so the article was echoing what I was saying, about using way less detergent. It said to do a test: Put some of your towels into the washer on hot with no detergent. Start the washer and watch to see if any suds form. If suds are forming, they are detergent residue from the towels themselves! Crazy! It took one lady six washes before all the soap was out of her towels. I did this test today, and I had no suds. I was a little disappointed. I also had to leave to pick up the kid from school, so I didn't add the vinegar.
Okay, I've started to bore myself. Time for a nap! If you want to read the article, search on detergent, New York Times. I think you'll find it.
