I've always ran some carbon thru the cycle but it's probably counter productive.
Ah crud ya i have the sponge, and carbon and little ead things that come with the AC70 (im running an ac70)

Ill rinse out the sponge after

I dont know about quilt batting, i would think it could slow the water down alot, plus you dont know what lubricants they are using on the machine, whic can get on the product, cert organic stuff may be an option, but would still be worried about the firat point.

Is filter floss not an option? Cut to shape and size stan a couple together if need be...
