    strip wash for a front loader

    I've had a quick look thru the sticky, but couldn't answer my question...

    on the BBH site, I'm sure it says you can't use the detergent method in a front loader, plus I think the rest of the instructions are about a top loader (i'm extremly sleep deprived so forgive my lack of brain functioning!)



    I've bought the canestan rinse, but now have no idea how I would go about doing a strip wash in a front loader.

    Step by step instructions would be greatly received! TIA

    That's what I wanna know! My machine seemed fine after my canesten wash... I've lost count how many times I've put some in there.

    I read that you can't use dish washing detergent in a front loader because they suds-up too much. But I did just do it in desperation anyway, just used a tiny squeeze of detergent, which sudsed up more than enough! I have over-sudsed my front loader quite a few times before (liquid detergent and wool wash and just getting used to having a front loader lol) so was trying to avoid that. But a tiny squeeze seemed to be OK.

    I did a strip wash yesterday with earth choice detergent and it hardly suds at all?! ...unless I missed it.
    Everything came out smelling nice and lemony tho
