I've seriously rinsed my dipes 12 times already and they are still bubbling. My arm is getting tired of cranking and I feel like I've rinsed enough!!!<br><br>
Do I have to get rid of all of them? Any way to get rid of them faster?

Are you using hot, hot water? Maybe add some water softener to help get that residue out.

I remember a trick from my early laundry days in college! Put a dryer sheet in the wash cycle to help get rid of suds.<br><br>
I don't use dryer sheets now so I'd have to borrow one haha BUT it may be worth a try?

Are you rinsing them by hand?<br><br>
Throw them in the washing machine and rinse on HOT a few cycles. Pour some boiling water into the machine and that will also help.

I had the exact same issue several months ago, till I figured out I was using WAY too much soap. If you have softened water, cut back on the amount you are using (I only use 1 TEASPOON of Charlie's liquid per load). Also, vinegar in the rinse helps to release some of the suds.
