Whether you use liquid or powdered laundry soap.. I always start the water and let it fill up at least 2 inches before adding the soap. This will keep the bottom of your washer "residue free" and ensure that you're getting the most out of the amount you add. Plus..Pouring detergent on clothing can cause fabrics to fade.

Read this today on Yahoo, & had to share. One of the most frustrating aspects of doing laundry is the number of socks that suspiciously go missing. Forget putting out an APB: Simply pin each pair together before throwing it in the machine. No sorting, no matching necessary afterward.
I have many cake decorator tips and sometimes even 2 or 3 of the SAME tip because I use them that often! It is VERY HARD TO SEE the numbers imprinted on each tip so,when I get a new tip I label it with my labelmaker from Brother. It saves time when trying to locate a tip and it can make it through the dishwasher in a special bag for tips [although I hand wash them ,too! I use the dishwasher to sterilize it even more!]. If the label does fade, I use a permanent marker to relabel it.
Additional tips of the same number I label as back-up tip #2, 3 or whatever number it is.
