You should be able to use it in the top loader. Going the other way is not possible, but it should work fine in the top loader. I wouldn't want to waste it when you don't have to.

Just doing laundry here. I went to Sears earlier to check out the ranges. I am thinking GE. I saw several that I liked. Has anyone had a range where the oven has a steam cleaning setting? This seems to be the new thing. How does it work? Any problems with rusting?

Oh okay Chops...I will check the online manual for our new washer that is coming on Monday and see if I can salvage the front loader powder, thank you

Mum mentioned that last night too...that it may be okay to use the front loader powder with the top loader but not the top loader powder with the front loader

Right. I agree with Mum on that one.

You need special laundry soap for top loaders?
Well I'll be...

Yeah, that's what I said


So what's the reasoning? Don't tumbling clothes pretty much behave the same? Is there something in front loader soap that makes it less slippery so it doesn't permeate or get past the gasket?

It is the front loaders that need the High Efficiency powder, the reason is so that there are not as many suds in the front load washing

I was looking at my shopping list and it is going to be a long one this time. I have to stock up for the summer. My daughter every weekend has a BBQ in her yard and I always bring or even just send something. A cake, potato salad, macoroni salad, baked beans, cookies, etc. Always one of her childhood favorites. And her family never says no either.

I talked with her yesterday. She is feeling good. But now her doctors are telling her more and more what to expect. Her brain is still swollen so they can't tell from the MRI just what the cancer is doing. At the begining they told her she would be taking the chemo pills for one year. Now they are telling her that some patients are on them for 18 months, two or even three years before they can tell what is going on. It may take that long for the swelling to go down. Well, she is not discouraged, but she is angry that they are not giving her the whole picture. "How can I rebuild my life if I don't know what to expect?" I managed to calm her down and remind her that not only she, but everyone that knows her are happy that they are saying she might be on the chemo for three years, but they expect her to be alive for three years. She hadn't looked at it that way. She is also going through her wardrobe to get ready to go back to work. I think that is the best thing she can do. She will work part time three weeks out of the month. Enough to protect her benefits.
Your daughter is very fortunate to have you for a mom & all the support you give. It would be difficult to imagine how difficult all of this has to be for you as well, then to be so strong for her. What an inspiration you are!
Take care!and one for your daughter too.
