Liquid Laundry Detergent

Liquid Laundry Detergent

Using high-efficiency (HE) liquid laundry detergent is similar to using regular detergent, but there are a few key differences to keep in mind:

  1. Check the Label: Make sure the detergent is labeled as "HE" or "High Efficiency." These detergents are specifically designed to work with HE washing machines, which use less water than traditional machines.

  2. Measure Properly: HE detergents are concentrated, so you typically need to use less than regular detergent. Check the detergent bottle for specific instructions on how much to use based on the load size. Using too much detergent can cause excess sudsing in HE machines.

  3. Load the Machine: Load your laundry into the washing machine as usual, following the manufacturer's guidelines for load size and type of fabric.

  4. Dispense Detergent: Most HE machines have a designated detergent dispenser. Pour the recommended amount of detergent into the dispenser drawer. Some HE detergents come with a measuring cap or cup to help you measure the correct amount.

  5. Start the Wash Cycle: Close the detergent dispenser drawer and start the wash cycle according to the settings you prefer for your laundry.

  6. Follow Manufacturer's Guidelines: Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for your specific washing machine and detergent. HE machines can vary in their requirements, so it's essential to refer to the user manual for the best results.

  7. Store Properly: Store your HE detergent in a cool, dry place, and make sure the cap or lid is securely closed to prevent leakage and maintain the detergent's effectiveness.

By following these steps, you can effectively use high-efficiency liquid laundry detergent in your HE washing machine to clean your clothes efficiently while using less water and energy.
