When I stayed in France and Italy my clothes were cleaner, specifically the whites. They said because the washing machine water is hotter than it is in the US. Is that true? Is it like close to boiling?
I'd like to use less bleach and a better European laundry detergent. I've heard Persil from Germany is the one. I used Ariel in France. I wear a lot of white cotton tops. I want whiter whites.
Does that Oxy Clean stuff work at all?
Are you concerned with the environment, fragrance, fresh smelling or no scent at all (clean means a scent to me I guess), allergies, price?
Do you use bleach? Pre-treat stain remover?
Just throw it in? Stand by the dryer and pull out to fold immediately to avoid wrinkles? Dump it on the sofa and let people take their stuff?
