<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> I'm new to this board & am about to take the plunge back into CDing. I cd'd my first for the first few months but used a service. This time I will be laundering my own so I have some questions. I've been reading through the posts/archives and see lots of good info about stripping the dipes periodically, etc. I'm wondering though if I can do this with my style of washing machine. It's one of the types that uses very little water. There is no full tub that the laundry floats around in. Instead it uses just a little water and agitates it upwards through the laundry. I don't think I can just run a rinse load, for example, and while there is a soak option I don't think I can run it w/o that option being a part of an actual cycle. Anyone have experience with this? Sorry - I don't have very specific questions yet as I haven't even done my first load (still waiting on the dipes to arrive). FWIW, I'll be starting with the pocket variety. Thanks in advance!
