Cleaning With Dishwasher Detergent

Use dishwashing powder (like Cascade) to pre-treat and launder your whites. It won't break down the fibers like bleach and will prevent your feet from smelling when you sweat.

Dishwasher detergents, in equal amounts with regular laundry detergent and bleach will whiten your whites like you wouldn't believe!! I own a restaurant and wash my dish towels in 1 cup each plus HOT water and they come out looking like new. Maybe not the cheapest fix, but it is a lot cheaper than American Linens or whatever. I use it for other laundry, too but don't always put in the bleach.

Editor's Note: Just a tablespoon or two of dishwasher detergent would probably be enough of a boost. It's very concentrated. (03/06/2006)

Another use is in whirlpool tubs--fill with warm water and put 2 Tbsp. and run for 1 to 2 minutes. (06/18/2006)

Cleaning With Dishwasher Detergent

Anyone know how to get the crud soap scum and calcium build up in my inner washer tub front load? My draining shows cruddy pieces of flakes after multiple cleanings with vinegar, bleach, dishwasher detergent, and rug shampoo in hot washes. Many, many, empty washes and rinses, but still crud comes out in drain water. Help!
