Frequently Asked Questions
Does it get all of the detergent and softner out when rinsing the clothes?
The key to the Wonderwash is to not over load it. You need head space so that the cloths can tumble while washing and rinsing. I use liquid detergent and softener together while washing, which consists of 200 rotations forward and back. I then let the cloths drain and I refill the tub for a rinse cycle. After another 200 rotations, I drain the water and put the cloths in my spin dryer, which will remove the soap, softener and dyes. I return the clothing to the Wonderwash for the final rinse of 200 rotations and then back to the spin dryer where the water comes out pretty clear and if it doesn't, then i go for another rinse. Keep in mind you can not do your laundry in bulk and for this reason, I believe, that my cloths come out cleaner, which you will notice with your colored cloths by how much dye will be removed when using the Wonderwash and a spin dryer combination for the first time. Cloths that I've had for years, when washed in my Wonderwash for the first time, released a lot of dye, which totally shocked me and made me realize that my cloths weren't really clean at all. For me, obtaining a spin dryer was the key to the whole process. You need to see the water being released from the cloths to decide if they need rinsed another time!
How dry are the clothes after washing?
Very wet and it is amazing how long it takes clothes to dry that way. You can buy a mini-dryer as well so for about $100 total for the washer and dryer, cleans delicates and daily wash when you don't have a full load in these units.
Can wash the bedding in this? If so, what size of sheets, etc. were you able to fit inside of this?
You can do full size regular sheets, both top and bottom, along with the two pillow cases. For heavier sheets though, but put one sheet and one pillow case in at a time.
