Try adding some soap to the wash water-I would use something like Dr  
Bronner's as it is a true soap and made of all natural ingredients  
(and is a great aphid killer). be sure the water is very soft, I add  
about 1 cup of distilled vinegar to 30 gallons of water and that  
seems to keep the water soft enough so the soap doesn't curdle.
