Yep, I go cold wash with 1/2 cup of baking soda, hot wash with Tide and 10 drops of TTO (TTO on every other wash or so), 1 extra rinse and then dry for a single cycle. Those with internal soakers get laid out to dry so I don't wear the heck out of them with 2 drier cycles each time.
I had been adding TTO to the 2nd rinse cycle (I do a cold rinse, hot wash followed by a double rinse). After reading this though, I'm going to try adding it to the wash cycle - it sure would be a lot easier!
