Common Questions about Laundry Capsules
First things first: What is a laundry capsule?
A capsule contains concentrated liquid detergent (and sometimes powdered ingredients, too) that has not only been pre-measured to the correct dosage, but is also extremely handy to use.
Why should I use this form of detergent?
Laundry capsules are a great form of detergent because they’re really convenient and simple to use. They save you from guessing dosage, adding in more than one product, and from sticky laundry room spills. As long as you carefully follow the instructions below and on the container, capsules will dissolve completely in the wash, plus an extra benefit is that the packaging they come in is usually recyclable. Eco-friendly and easy to use? It’s no wonder washing capsules are so popular!
How to use laundry capsules in general:
Simply toss one capsule into the drum before adding a load of clothes! It doesn’t matter if you use a top or front loader, just pop it in at the back. Make sure you don’t overload the machine: capsules need enough space to move freely and properly dissolve. Refer to the packaging of the capsules and the care labels of the clothing you’re washing to determine what temperature is best.
