High Efficiency Pet Peeve

So we got a new energy efficient washer that uses the High Efficiency detergent. My daughter who is a bit OCD and a clean freak always loads it only halfway and then fills the detergent cup almost all the way to the top. That is 3-4X as much as is required to wash a load of laundry as you are supposed to use the lid to measure the detergent. You are supposed to fill it to level 1 for a small load, 2 for a larger load, and 3 for a heavily soiled load. I have asked her many times to start using the measuring lid, and she still doesn't. So we go through tons of laundry detergent and that stuff is expensive. Anyone else have any pet peeves they would like to get off their chest? :)

Umm....How about a roommate who won't clean, but thinks it's ok to complain when things are starting to get dirty...Or doesn't ever do dishes, and complains when there aren't any left...those are my biggest!

Maybe you should make your daughter buy her own laundry detergent. Then she'll understand. lol
