My washing machine chooses the water temperature depending on what I select as the type of clothes I am washing. Most settings are warm/cold, sanitary is extra hot/cold, and delicate is cold/cold.

Why wouldn't a homemade nylon net bag work just as well, plus it's washable?

A knee high nylon would work, too!

Our new washing machine is working wonderfully, so happy with it

We wash on 20 degrees, so not warm but not cold, although very close to cold...seems to be doing well on that temperature

Most of my washing is done with cold water. But, that said, my husband is a grease-ball. Love him dearly, but even in his late 60s, he still has oily hair and skin. So it is hot water when I do sheets and his, as the Brits sometimes say it, his smalls.

The DH is a dirt and grease magnet--he has "shop/farm/grease monkey clothes" and "uniforms" (those clothes he only wears when he goes to see clients, to the doctor or dentist, or on business trips). He buys replacement shop clothes at thrift store. I was about to take him to the airport last week. He had a "white" shirt on. I said "you're not wearing that, are you?" "Why not? It's clean." "It might be clean, but it is all stained." "Really?" I can't decide if he has Aspergers or is just obtuse...thank goodness he does his own laundry in his own washer. He still got frisked and strip searched at the airport...gotta keep a close watch on those brainy Ph.D.s who look like rednecks. And, he wasn't even wearing his boots that always have chicken poo on the soles (I have trained him to keep a pair of work boots as part of his uniform and not to wear them out to visit the hens).
