Quoting ~The Lunar Flower~:" No bleach for sure. I would only do hot washes because unfiltered vinegar doesnt clean nearly as well ... [snip!] ... clean nearly as well as distilled so it'd be kinda useless to use it. I'd use blue dawn dish soap instead since you have alvas"
Thanks everyone! I think ill just do two hot washes and strip them next time. I wont use bleach, or the vinegar and try to find the dawn dish soap! I heard your not suppose to use the Dawn Ultra which seems to be all I can find at Target and Walmart! Ill keep looking. thanks girls.
(I tried looking for Alvas washing instructions and they dont say much except to wash under 86 degrees)
