you didn't ruin them, and the calgon will wash out in this next wash (I see by the other thread that they are in the wash again) You may notice more suds than usual, which is good, just keep running them through hot rinses until there are no suds (which is basically a strip wash anyway) They should be fine after that. I use calgon at least once every other week, about a half capful added to the first wash cycle, then 2 hot rinses, more if I still have suds.<br><br>

hi<br>
he did the wash with cold and with a bit detergent. and we have to pay for every wash so we cant do just rinses. so i hope that works out.

my washer doesnt have the option for just rinses, so I would just run them through a complete cycle with nothing in it.
