One Year Later

soap

I have a Kenmore (from Sears) front loader. I had a Kenmore repair guy here for routine servicing under warranty last year. He told me I was using too much soap when doing my loads. You are not supposed to use the cup liquid soap comes with. (I use HE soap for front loading). You are only supposed to use 1 tablespoon. so I bought a set of measuring spoons from the dollar store and use the 1 tbs for measuring my soap for each load. I wanted to see how long this container of soap would last, so I marked the date on it when I started it. It says 185 loads on the bottle. I started it Feb 20, 2012 - Almost a year ago!!! I am almost down to the end of the bottle now, probably 500-600 loads later. I can't believe it & my clothes come out clean with that little soap each use! Thank you Kenmore service guy!

I was told the same thing when I had a reverse osmosis system installed in our last house. I never thought of writing the date on there. I'll have to do that next time I buy soap.

Wow! I had no idea about the amount of soap, I just use the little cup that comes with it. I'll have to try using a tablespoon and see how the clothes come out. Thanks for the tip... to you and the Kenmore guy!

Is this true for top loader as well? I always use about half of what the cup says I should use, but if I can get away with a tablespoon, I will!
