Liquids and Washing Machine

Washing clothes is a daily task for most people. It doesn’t have to be a painful one, and we’ve made sure of that for you. Different types of detergents are available in the market such as detergent powder, liquid detergent, etc. We’re here to share the benefits of using liquid detergents in your laundry routine.

Liquid detergent dissolves more easily either in cold or hot water and washes away without leaving behind the pesky residue that powders do. Using a liquid detergent does have a host of other benefits as well, and here they are!

Here are the benefits of using liquid detergent:

  1. Liquid Detergents are Easy to Use

    When it comes to any detergent, you need to use a certain amount into a designated area of your washing machine. Please read the user manual for directions on where to pour your detergent.

    Using liquid detergent makes the task of pouring out a fixed amount a lot easier when compared to using a spoon or two of detergent powder. Dapat sakto lang! What makes liquid detergents even more convenient is they do not come in large boxes like powder detergents which are difficult and heavy to carry around. A simple easy-carry bottle is all you need, and most of them include a measuring cup as well. This makes measuring and pouring specific amounts much easier and more exact.

  2. Liquid Detergents Dissolve Quickly

    When you use a liquid detergent, you can be sure that it will dissolve in the water quickly. Mas madaling matunaw, mas magaling. What’s more, liquid detergents don’t leave unwanted white soap residue on your clothes after the wash is complete. It is also a lot easier to scrub your clothes using a liquid detergent than using soap.

  3. Liquid Detergents Conserve Water

    Using a liquid detergent certainly helps you save on the amount of soap you use because you use less liquid detergent when compared to powder or bars. But equally important, it also enables you to save water. Soap and powders require a lot more water to dissolve them when compared to liquids. As this detergent is already in a liquid state, dissolving in water is not an issue. Ultimately this allows you to use less water as well for tipid points. On an eco-conscious note: saving water is always a good idea especially as water is seen as an increasingly scarce and valuable resource in the future.

  4. Liquid Detergent Help Treat Stains

    When you need to pre-treat stains and do not have a stain removal solution handy, you can simply use liquid detergent. It quickly cleans most kinds of stains thoroughly. Just pour 3-4 drops of liquid detergent directly on the stain and rub in gently. Then wash with plain water. Afterwards, the stain should be gone. You will find that liquid detergent is an all-in-one in even more ways. Sulit! You may repeat once again if needed.

Some garments like silk or wool need special care while washing and there are good liquid detergents available on the market for these kinds of fabrics.

  6. Liquid Detergent Is Ideal for Your Washing Machine

    Most washing machines already include a special soap dispenser for liquid detergents as well. This is probably due to the fact that liquid detergents are the better and proven choice for washing machines.
