is your laundry still clean if you forgot to put in detergent?

I have to use cold water to wash my clothes in the machine (the hot water hose has a leak somewhere, needs a washer I never got round to replacing). I've never found it to be a problem - I use cold water detergents like Cold Power and it seems fine. If I actually need germ-killing (eg the lad's hideously icky sox, or a bunch of grotty tea towels) then I'll soak them in hot water in a bucket and then do a normal wash.

Thinking of buying one of those new LG washer/dryer things tho. What could be better than a machine that washes and then dries your stuff for you all in one hit?

Next time someone says that to you, take note of their smell. (xpost)

yeah, cold water works fine for most things, i think too. i use hippie bio detergent and it's just fine. i don't even want to think about communal washers and their "residue."

Yeah, my washer does a little shuffly dance on spin and rocks my apartment.

Ours used to walk out of the closet in our old place, but now it's in the basement and just throws anything left on top across the room.
