Front load soaking help.

Hello All,

 I have been CDing now for 10 months and this last week Z had what appeared to be a yeast infection. I think. We cleared it up and I want to soak my CD's. I have heard vinegar and bakin soda. The problem is  I have a front loading washer and all of the instructions are more for top loading. Water doesn't stay in the my front.

 Does anyone have front loading instructions or another way I can soak them?

  • I use a few 5 gallon buckets, but I've heard plenty of people soaking in their bathtub.  Not ideal, sorry.

    Agreed.  But make sure you use bleach.  Vinegar and baking soda won't kill the yeast.

  • So when you soak in the bathtub, what do you use? Do you just drown the cloth diapers in the water?

  • I have yet to figure out a way to soak in my front loader. We have a utility sink that I use. If I didn't have that I'd probably use the bath tub.
  • For yeast, I wouldn't soak. I would wash with really hot water and bleach, then hang in the sun to dry.

    This is what I would do.

    I soak in my front loader.  I start the wash then pause it once the water has finished going in, then I pour a few gallons of water in through the detergent dispenser.

    How much bleach? I thought bleach was bad?

     THanks everyone. I should add that I"m not sure if it was a yeast infection. It was a few raised bums right below the scrotum.
