You may be wondering what kind of Sunlight laundry detergent to use in your machine. It can be confusing since there are different types of machines, such as top-loading and front-loading machines. Here is a guide on how much Sunlight auto washing powder to use in your machine, depending on whether it is a top loader or front loader.
Let’s first start with the benefits of washing machine powders made by Sunlight.
Benefits of Sunlight Auto Powder
The Sunlight Auto Washing Powder range of products offers both freshness and fragrance in one. There are a variety of additional benefits that this great auto washing machine powder range offers, including:
It leaves a fresh, lasting scent after every wash
It is a 2in1, which means it combines a washing powder and fabric conditioner in one powder, saving you money on having to buy two different products.
It gets rid of dirt and stains easily
It leaves your clothing looking and smelling fresh and clean
Now that you understand the benefits of using Sunlight Auto for the whole family’s clothing and fabrics, let’s take a look at how to correctly use and dose this powder for both top-loading and front-loading washing machines.
How to Dose For A Front-Loading Machine
As their name suggests, front loading washing machines are those in which you load the dirty laundry into the drum from the front. The door opens outward from the drum, you push in the load of laundry and close the door again.
When it comes to adding in your detergent, here’s how to do it:
How do you choose your cleaning products?
Most front-loaders have a dispensing drawer which is usually split into three compartments. One for laundry detergent, one for fabric softener and one for any pre-wash detergents you choose to use.
When you use Sunlight Auto Washing Powder. Add the powder to the laundry detergent compartment of the dispenser. Do not add the powder directly into the drum or into any other section of the dispenser.
Add one scoop or 180ml of Sunlight powder into the dispenser for a normal load of washing. For larger loads or more heavily soiled loads, you can increase the dose to one and a half scoops.
How to Dose For A Top-Loading Machine
Top-loaders, also called twin tubs, are designed so that laundry is loaded into the drum from the top. A door at the top of the machine can open up and outward and you are able to place the laundry into the drum from the top. These types of machines are used for families with larger washing needs and even for professional use in some businesses like guest houses or B&Bs.
When it comes to adding in your detergent, here’s how to do it.
Most top loaders or twin tubs do not have a specific detergent dispenser. So, you simply need to add the powder directly into the drum of the machine. We recommend pouring the powder into the drum before loading it with the dirty laundry.
Add one and a half scoops or 270 ml to top loaders for a normal load of washing. For heavily soiled loads, we recommend increasing the dosage to 2 scoops or 360mls of powder.
If you are unsure or want to confirm your understanding, always check the dosage directions on your Sunlight Auto Washing Powder packet for confirmation. Rather be safe than sorry when it comes to the correct dose for powder detergents.
