So I am brushing my teeth tonight while standing by my washer. I have owned it for 8 years but never really read all that fine print on the bottom of the door. It says to never put anything in the washer that has oil on it, even cooking oil. And additionally it says to never ever put these oily cloths in the dryer or else risk EXPLOSION. OK, I have been doing this for 8 years!!!!! Is this really a risk? Do they really mean like completely soaked? I use dishcloths instead of paper towels which means I occasionally wipe up things like salad dressing and olive oil. Dh has even been known to wipe out a frying pan rather than bother with washing it. Am I just playing with fire here? And if so, what should I do instead? We do not buy disposable napkins or towels or even TP. If it matters, my dryer is electric.
