Has anyone tried this product in a front loader? We have an LG. I'm not when I would add the bluing - would I put it in the fabric softener? It says to add to rinse cycle but I can't tell when that occurs on our washer and don't think I will able to keep checking on the wash.

Don't you have to dilute it in a lot of water before you add it? I haven't used it for ages but I thought you had to dilute it in a quart. So I don't think you could use the fabric softener inlet.

I use it all the time in my GE frontloader ...

1. Wash whites as normal on a full wash cycle.

2. Run them through the short cycle wash. Instead of any detergent, bleach, etc., I simply mix up maybe a 1/2 teasp. of Mrs. Stewarts in a 1 quart jar of water and add it to the detergent slot AFTER the water has started filling the washer.

My whites have never looked better!

Thanks for your responses
Lindberg99 you are right I don't think it will go in the fabric softener.
MommyErin Thank you for your suggestion. I can't wait to try it out.
