My question is, how do I add vinegar for my rinse, and baking soda/oxyclean/bluing to my wash? I'm guessing I can put the vinegar in the "fabric softener" spot in the detergent drawer, but usually for baking soda/bluing/oxyclean I add it in at the very beginning of the wash. The bluing is my biggest problem, since it has to be diluted with about a liter of water before being dumped in the wash. Anyone have any ideas? I've been taking the clothes out of the wash after the rines, soaking them in a big bucket with the bluing, and then putting them back in for a final rinse. It's a huge pain, especially since there is no utility sink in the laundry room. At least I only have a few loads of whites
I use borax but wash on cold, so it doesn't dissolve. I mix the borax in with hot water and dump it in the washer (awkward, but it works). Then put clothes in and run the cycle.
You could also put whatever dilute product you want in the bleach slot, as long as the volume of it isn't a lot.
