  • I use liquid laundry soap. When I dump the laundry soap in, while the water is running in the washer. I just put the cap under the water to rinse it off.

  • Always, why waste that little bit of detergent that always stays in the cap, and its not dripping everywhere.

  • I do what Louise2 does, wash it in the water. some caps have seams in them and they might snag the material so I don't leave it in the washer to wash with the clothes

  • i wash mine in the water. I just do it so i don't get detergent everywhere when I put the cap back on

  • I used to do that. I stopped as I would find it full of water or half full after dumping the rest on the rinsed clothes. I rinse it under the running water though.
