    I'm with you on that one. I detest our LG front loader and people look at me like I have 3 heads when I say that.

    I have a Bosch front loader and I love it! The clothes come out practically dry, and it cleans like a dream. I'm a hippie so I make my own detergent out of zote, washing soda and borax. I also throw in some vinegar and use a combo of Dawn dish soap and hydrogen peroxide. My whites are incandescent. . I used to use bluing, but I don't feel that front loaders have enough water to mix that well.

    this should probably go in the newest purchases thread but it seems more appropriate here. behold, my new clothes drying rack:



    well, not yet. it's shipped and i haven't gotten it yet. i saw it at a friend's house about a month ago and almost stole hers. i don't put my clothes in the dryer and live in an apartment so usually everything ends up hanging all over the apartment because it's really, really hard to find a decent drying rack. i looked in a bunch of stores and found a shitty one that i fill really quickly and then end up with laundry drying everywhere. i love that this one is massive and most of all i love that it has a rack for hangers on top because all my shirts and dresses have to dry on hangers.

    ^i just bought that at costco two weeks ago! i get so much more laundry done at once because i hang dry most of my tops and now i can do about 20 things at once instead of the 6 or so on my old drying rack.

    that's a great drying rack! i think that will be the next one we purchase. i, too, dry very few things, so a good drying rack is a must, and ours gets full too quickly, it seems.

I don't want a perfume smell, I want that freshly laundered fake smell you get from the detergent. I'd love to use the expensive boutique stuff but it's not practical.

    Anymore brands you use?
    I like the perfumy stuff. The scent boosters, dryer sheets, the whole 9 yards. I'm such a girl.

    Dangit, our line is breaking off of its tree. We'll have to rig something up.

    Also, I'm looking long and hard at this: Instructions - The Laundry Pod I just don't know if I need it anywhere, but I kind of love it! Maybe for camping?

    and it could double as a giant salad spinner.

    Oh, I'm a changed woman. I officially love my new set of front loaders. Mostly because i can wash king comforters, duvets, and duvet covers. No trip to the laundromat.

    I love that drying rack. I don't dry my jeans, so i need a rack with a lot of space.

    I saw some less than stellar reviews about the laundry pod, but back in my single, no car, travel to the laundromat days, I would have loved to have it!

    welcome to the dark side! I LOVE that my front loader has room for my California King quilt/comforter.

    A scent booster? Off to google...

    Fantastic dryer rack up there. I won't hang anything in my super damp bathroom but see those exposed hinges on the bifold doors when the doors are open? They are the best place I can find to hang up shirts.

    Those Downy Unstoppables have just started to be advertised here. How strong is the smell? Don't they interfere with the smell of your perfume and stuff?

    Might be nice to use for bedding and towels...very tempted by the wash fresh version, I'm a sucker for those 'clean' smells. If it's anything like Philosophy Baby Grace, I'm in!

    No, they don't interfere with perfumes or anything. Just a hint of freshness. But, if in doubt - just use it on your sheets first.
