Ive seen this as a way to get rid of stinkies, but I cant remember how much to put into the load. Anyone use it?

You only need a drop.  A teeny bit.  Nothing else.  Run on hot/hot if possible, and then run with just water on the hottest possible temp until the wash water runs clear.

But if you have a front-loader, you really are not supposed to use this, b/c the foaming can destroy the washer.  We have fixed stinkies without Dawn.  :-)

I have a front loader and have successfully used RLR to strip my grandkids' diapers in it.  Here are several other ways to do it without foaming products: I hope this helps.
