Laundry: Which type are you??
I was wondering after having my own experience with my husband...

Do you,

A: put the clothes in first and then fill it up with water??

B: fill it up with water first, then add the clothes??

And when do you add the soap??

Tell me how and why.. I´m curious and listening :84:

Add clothes first, detergent, close the washing machine lid, and it starts to fill with water. I add the detergent on the clothes because if I add it first it looks like the detergent will go down all the little drain holes. Lol

Yeah.......that´s literally the only way I´ve ever done it too..

Didn´t know people did it any other way....

Side note: you can throw the detergent cup in with the wash to clean it as well..

Never thought of putting the detergent cup in there, as well! You´ll get all the detergent out of the saving tip!!

:92: Clothes I hide from my mother go in first, then the covers, the soap goes where the water is going to be shooting over my clothes! :92:
Addenda; There is ALWAYS a last article of clothing going in a minute late!

See, I always pour the detergent into the water stream as it´s filling up...I´ve had clothes get discolored from coming in direct contact with the detergent,you can rinse the cup out in the water stream...

Gotta admit, never thought about throwing the cup. in with the laundry before.

Interesting, but doesn´t it sound annoying clacking around in there?

Also, we have 5 people in here, 3 of which are irresponsible assholes (ie children). We´d be losing cups all the time. I´d have to be ordering 3 packs from Amazon.

My hub told me about the cup thing, I´ve done it a few times... didn´t hear anything.. I was worried at first it´d break something but it didn´t. He noticed it said it right on the back of the detergent. I never knew...

I guess if you look at it from a convenience standpoint it makes sense...after your done filling the cup - throw it in.... saves you time from having to rinse it off yourself - manually...from the gunkyy detergent buildup

So yes ladies and gentlemen, I like to fill with water, toss a detergent pod in , let it agitate so that the detergent mixes evenly throughout the water, thennnn add the clothes, shut the lid and let it do its thing..... :37: :34:

My husband however dumps the clothes in, adds the detergent, then the water, shuts the lid and walks away.....

Assuming this is hand wash: B.

Water & soap first. Then soak in the clothing.

Try doing that with a front loading washer :)

yes me too.. but there is a divide here.. top loading washers are still more common here, I think, whereas the euros have known only front loaders for generations.
