Thank you, I really appreciate the help. I was thinking that I would just put some right into the machine with the clothing, don't know how that would have worked.
I have a kenmore machine and I add 1/3 cup borateem with the liquid detergent in the little cup provided for the detergent. I have done it this way for a couple years. No problems and the rubber liner is never smelly like some get.
I don't have the same brand washing machine as you. However, borax goes into the wash cycle with the clothes and the detergent. I would start the water running and add the detergent and borax before I added the clothing, if I were you. Somehow that seems to work better.
Put a tablespoon of Borax in your laundry and you can cut your soap by more than half. It cleans, brightens, and removes odors and saves on laundry detergent.
What are the benefits of using borax for laundry?
