We have a new splendide in our RV and really like it, however, I have been working to understand how I can keep cloths from wrinkling.

Does anyone have a suggestion other than the tennis ball and has anyone used regular detergent verses the recommended powder as I see this could be the problem.

Thanks for any suggestions given.

Keep the loads small, Use low spin for 30 minutes. take the clothes out damp and hang/air dry or if not hangable clothes fold them and put them back in the dryer and run until dry. Yes, reg. detergent is okay but use just a little. We use Costco/Kirkland powder. One tablespoon per load of detergent and one teaspoon of softner.

I have been using All liquid for front load washers and Downy Ultra. One tablespoon of the detergent and 2 of the fabric softener is what my washer recommendations are. Like the last post said keep the loads small. I too usually take shirts etc out damp to finish drying.

I have been using Wrinkle Release for several years instead of an iron. It's great stuff. If something is wrinkled, just spray it on, then smooth out the wrinkles with hands. I buy it from Dollar General but there is a name brand version at any big box or grocery store. Forget who makes it though. The stuff at DG is at least half the price.

I use powder Tide. For the wrinkle problem, small loads (no more than up to the center line of the washer tub). I dry for 30 minutes. Then remove and lightly streach the clothes. Return the clothes to the dryer and run until dry. Remove immediately when the door unlocks.

I am a little late in saying "Thanks" to everyone who responded to my Splendide questions. I have been using my machine and still working to get the best results.

Again, thanks.
