I have a front loader (LG brand) that is AWESOME -- I use the hand wash setting all the time with great results. Mine has settings for spin speed including "No spin" which is what I use.
At the risk of some gasps of horror out there, I'll toss my hand wash into the dryer (yes, I said dryer
) and use the air setting for just a few minutes to get a little of the moisture out before I lay things flat to dry.
I say give it a try on something store bought rather than something you made to test it out.
