I recently purchased on of those front loading washing machines, a Whirlpool Duet Sport, and find that my wash always end up smelling like detergent (All 2X Ultra HE) even though I have reduced the amount of the liquid that I use and always set the Extra Rinse Option to ON. So, I called Whirlpool Customer Service the other day and asked what if anything can be done and they suggested that I add salt to the wash to counteract our very soft water where I live. This seems a bit odd, but I will give it a try.
So, would Kosher salt be better than regular table salt? What about sea salt - would my clothes smell like the sea?
