Powder oxy-clean & HE washer.. Help!

Hello ladies, I am kind of lurker on this board, but now need some advices/direction from you. I have a high-efficiency washer, so I use the liquid HE detergent. I want to use Oxyclean to help rejuvenate the whites and colors.

My questions are: 1) Can I use Oxyclean with my HE washer and 2) If you have done this before and see no issues, where should I put the oxyclean powder??? Mix it in with the liquid or just sprinkle on the clothes?

Thanks so much !

  • Yes, you can uses Oxi Clean with an HE washer with no issues.  I have one and use Oxi Clean sometimes.  You just sprinkle the Oxi Clean in the empty tub before you put in the clothes.

  • I just use the Oxy-Clean liquid instead of the powder.

  • I just started using oxyclean with my HE washer and I just dumped a cup or w/e amount into the actual tub.  My mother recommended doing this and she has an HE also.  HTH & GL! =)

  • I was just going to ask this - thanks for beating me to it!

    For folks who are talking about adding it to the tub - is this in a front-loaded?  (I do not know if there are top-loader HE or not.  I figure not, but I also figure it is better to ask, just in case!)


    Thanks!

  • Yes, adding it directly in the tub is for a front-loader.

    *butting in* I have a top-loader HE (Maytag Bravos = awesome!!) and use the powder oxy-clean in it on occasion. I just put it in the washer on top of the clothes.
