Which Type of Detergent Is Best For You?


Which Type of Detergent Is Best For You?

For the past several decades, liquid and powder laundry detergents has been the dominant form of detergents in the market. However, with the launch of Tide Pods in the early 2010s, packet-style detergents have re-emerged as a very popular alternative. Here’s a breakdown to help you determine which style of detergent is right for you after you purchase your new washing machine from Happys Appliances Outlet!

Liquid Detergent

Liquid detergent is very popular largely because it doubles as a stain remover. They are also much cheaper to use than laundry packets. The drawbacks of liquid detergents is that it can be very easy to use too much or too little, and that the packaging is not very eco-friendly.

Powder Detergent

Powder detergent is the most cost-friendly option out of the different types of detergent. It also has an upper hand on liquid detergent because of its recyclable packaging. However, if you like to wash your clothes with cold water, it might not be the right option for you. It is hard for powder detergent to dissolve in cold water.

Laundry Packets

What makes laundry pods so popular is how convenient they are to use. They are already pre-measured and pre-packaged, preventing any potential guesswork and/or messes that can arise when using other types of detergent. However, they are the priciest of the three detergents that we’ve covered, and they’re also a poison hazard for dogs and kids. In the end, all three types of detergent make for great effective options!
