Washing Machine Tip

My mother taught me this and I've "only" come across this tip, once in 5 yrs. It really amazes me how excited people get when I pass it along!


  1. Set dials on your washing machine.
  2. Turn "on" so water starts.
  3. Add detergent and swish, to get bubbles mixed.
  4. Then add clothes to the washer!

It gives clothes a "little" prewash plus you know the soap's all mixed!
I love "ThriftyFun!" Thanks

That's a great tip- I do that too but I also only use 2/3's the reconmended amount of soap- dump it in the washer and rinse the cup out with the running water and dump that in too, to get the last little bit out.
