Go Easy on the Detergent
An interesting article in the New York Times highlights how much dishwashers and washing machines have changed and along with the changes, how the amount of detergent and water needed in the newer machines is far less than in the older models. Here at Bumkins we talk about tablespoons of detergent for washing cloth diapers. Unfortunately, most people do not read instructions or follow directions so we could possibly be doing damage to these newer models. The article provides wonderful tips on how to use the appliances correctly and thus hopefully prevent any damage.
