AFFRESH Question

Posted by joyce58 (My Page) on

Recently bought a Whirlpool Cabrio High Efficiency washer....Love it!
The instructions say to clean with AFFRESH once a month...My question is, if I do only one wash a week can I do the AFFRESH cleaning less often than once a month ( maybe every 2 months?)
I would not do anything to "harm" my new washer, so have been doing the once a month AFFRSH thing.
ALso, since I DO NOT use bleach ( too toxic) is there another natural fabric whitener I can add to my machine for whites? In my old machine, I added baking soda.....
Happy and Healthy New Year to you all.

RE: AFFRESH Question

Joyce, I don't know the answer to your Affresh question - the answer will depend most likely not on how many washes you do but what kind (cold, warm, hot or sanitary?) and what kind of detergent you use.

As to whitening, I would recommend oxygen bleach which works really well (but it will not work in cold washes, it needs higher temps to activate). IMO Ecover brand is best but I also had good results with Chlorox Green Works powder Oxygen Bleach. It is color safe.
