Cold water for colors and hot for whites.

Warm for most with a cold rinse.

Hot for cloth diapers though.

I am a Canadian,breastfeeding (it IS best, there is nothing even close to that nutrition and bond), co sleeping, extended rear facing (if you don't rear face to the maximum of your seat, you're NOT doing all you can to protect your child), baby wearing, Non spanking (I want my kids to respect me, not fear me) ANTI- CIO, homemade baby food making, cloth diapering, organic (chemical free household!) recycling mama to TWO and one on the way! My husband is my equal and best friend, not my master and I believe basic health care should be a human RIGHT, not a privilege.

I go to the laundrymat and the washers are set by colors...hot for whites, warm for darks, and cold for brights

I have lost my mind... and my kids keep chasing it around the house.
Oh great now its scared and hiding from them too.

We use cold water for everything. We were noticing that our clothes were shrinking alot when we used hot water, so now, it's cold. Everything still seems to get clean, so it hasn't really made a difference in that department.
