Bosch front loader using vinegar as softener in i-dos compartment
I posted this on whirlpool as well
Just finished unpacking and setting up the Bosch front loader washing machine (WAW28620AU).
We've previously used vinegar as the fabric softener. Has anyone with the Bosch i-dos washer used vinegar into the i-dos softener compartment?
This link https://www.bosch-home.com.au/customer-service/get-support/c... says that vinegar is not recommended for cleaning as it causes too much damage to the rubber parts of the machine.
However, it seems to be contradicted by this post https://www.bosch-home.com.au/experience-bosch/living-with-b... which states, "To remove discolouration and keep your whites gleaming, add one cup of lemon juice or distilled vinegar to the wash cycle."
The instruction manual is also a bit contradictory for "before washing for the first time". In Run the programme without laundry it has a step 6 "Pour standard washing powder into compartment". I thought idos was designed for liquid detergents.
