....continuing from another email string:
(Ah, young grasshoppa… you are learning.
Good to hear from you again!
The most likely reason for your continuing smell is the large amount of detergent you are using.
It is good that you have cut back on the amount. Try to watch something that gets consistently dirty like the boys socks or something and keep cutting back until you see that these are not as clean as before.
I have a degree in chemical engineering and decades of experience and this cutting back process is formally known as a “field adjustment”.
most people know it as a “guess”…….
Anyway, you will know the maximum you need for the tough loads.
Cut back as much as you can
