Polyfill pillows in a Bravos (Mara 2008 can you help?) :o)
If anybody can give advice........particularly Mara 2008 (since you also own a Bravos)
My grandmother is having issues with washing her polyfill pillows in her Maytag Bravos. She says they do not get as clean as she would want them and they get a little lumpy after they are dried. Is she doing something wrong? Isn't there a specific way to place them in the washer in order for them to get clean effectively? I thought there was but I forget what it is. I think she is plopping them right on top of the impeller. Should they be placed in the tub upright alongside the tub wall?
Everything other type of load comes out fine, though.........fantastic actually!
Oh........they are standard-size bed pillows and she is using the bulky cycle. She washes 2 per load. she might be able to wash 3, but would that be overloading the machine? What do you think? She is also using tide HE to clean them, about 2-3 tbsp. Is that too little?
Also, I want to buy her some Persil. I'm guessing that Persil is just as effective in an HE TL as it is in a FL. How much Persil Megaperls should she use for loads of:
-twin and full-size sheets
-standard-size polyfill bed pillows
-full-size polyfill comforters (2 at a time......or would this be overloading?)
-small to medium sized loads of mixed light and dark-colored clothing.
Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!! :o)
