2 quick cleaning related queries please.
How does everyone organise their washing, specifically soiled children's clothing (with food stains or dirt etc). Do you wash daily to avoid the stains setting in? Leaving in a basket in the bedroom or laundry? (I'm always paranoid of ants if I leave clothes in the bedroom basket covered in weetbix or strawberries). And then wash every few days or every week? Or some sort of 'soaking system'? Any tips much appreciated as I don't think I'm being as effective and efficient.
Secondly we've moved into a rental 2 years ago with a dishwasher and I've never used it because I've never had one before, so used to just washing dishes. Baby #2 is almost here so I want to start using it but not idea of the best detergent? It's a Miele if that means anything and the manual was useless - it went on about working out if our water is hard or soft and potentially adding salt? Way too much hard work!
Many thanks in advance for your replies x
