    I try not to put undies in with teatowels and dishcloths. Other clothes yes.


    OP I use omo sensitive in a front loader. All my clothes come out really clean and I rarely ever need to soak anything. I always wait until it is on special (eg sometimes Coles sell it out half price) and buy up bit to last me to the next sale.

    I have a samsung front loader and use Aldi laundry liquid and a scoop of napisan in every wash. Almost everything goes in, clothes, linen and towels. Whites get there own wash.

    Tea towels and dish clothes get washed separately, ALWAYS! And I squirt a generous amount of disinfectant into the load.

    Cold power or radiant are good. I used to use cheap brands but you can't beat quality. Both woollies and Coles usually have one or the other on sale.

    I use BioZet - works well in cold water in a front loader.

    I use Omo in my front loader and wash in cold water. It's great. I was using bio zet but the powder would never fully wash out of the dispenser, so Omo it is. Plus the clothes smell fresh and I can buy it in bulk at Costco!

    Omo- everything is on cold wash, except whites.
    Whites get a half cap of napisan too.

    OMO

    Was using the sensitive for a little while but went back to the normal one as I liked the smell better...strange I know.

    Often it comes on sale around half price for the smaller containers or you can buy it in bulk from a few stores also.

    I wash dish cloths with table cloths and placemats only. I also divide clothes into whites, brights, darks, and I won't wash 'fluffy' clothes with non-fluffy! Socks get washed with jeans or towels, undies go with t shirts! My poor DP has a hard time keeping up with the divisions!
