Whirlpool Duet htFrontYEBF, no solids. Update: Have now started solids and haven't changed it yet.DroppsStep 1: Quick wash cycle on cold (25 minutes), no detergent. May add half amount of detergent if particularly soiled or large load.Step 2: Whitest Whites cycle, with detergent (this cycle is on "hot" and includes an extra rinse, about 60 minutes long)Notes: At this point we've had no need to use vinegar or any other additives. We did use bleach in a couple cycles when battling a yeast rash. Line dry or dryer on lowest heat setting. If line dried, pop in dryer for 15 minutes to fluff up and soften.lrachelle80

Whirlpool Ultimate Care IITopNEcoSproutStep 1: Cold rinse; no detergentStep 2: Machine doesn't have a soak feature built in, so I set for a hot wash with double rinse, and let the tub fill with the lid open and detergent added (3 T). I leave it open for an hour to soak and then close the lid and let the cycle finishI dry liners, inserts, and wipes on low for 45 min, while line-drying the covers, and then I put the covers in for the last 20 minutes to soften them up/finish the drying of nooks and crannies. :) Since I've started soaking in EcoSprout, I have had NO STINKIES!
