Who hasn’t asked this question? You have probably mastered how to use a washing machine, but then comes the next step, where do I put the detergents? In this article, we will walk you through where to put washing products in your washing machine.

Once you know where to put washing powders and softeners in your machine, consider the results. If your clothes are a little less soft than you’d like, it may be because you are using the wrong type of fabric conditioner!

Where Do I Put Washing Products in my Washing Machine?

In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of deciding where to put washing products in your washing machine. It is always a good idea to refer to the manufacturer’s manual but here are some general guidelines to get you started:

Firstly, determine the type of washing machine you have. Is it top loading or front loading?

Front loading machine

To put it simply, a front loading machine opens at the front, whereas a top loading machine opens at the top. When using a front loading machine, slide open the drawer and inside you should see a three (sometimes just two) compartments with the following symbols:

I= pre wash

II= main wash

Flower symbol= fabric softener

For a pre-wash, put a pre-wash detergent into the comparment, followed by a powder or liquid detergent into the main wash compartment. If you're machine has a slot for fabric softner, adding a conditioner, such as Comfort Pure, will not only make your clothes nice and soft, but leave them smelling amazing!

Top loading machine

When working with a top loading machine, do not add the detergent or softener to the top of the load as this can stain your garments. Add the recommended dose of powder/liquid detergent followed by fabric softener into the drum and add the washing on top.

If you're using a product such a Persil Bio Capsules, simply adding these directly to the drum before your washing will get the job done!

As confusing as washing machines are, hopefully you now have a clear answer to where to put detergents and fabric softeners in of all kinds of washing machines.
