I was reading some reviews and one person wrote "I know the clothes are
cleaner because I can smell the detergent" Duh, you can smell residue
Many years ago I was developing a product that needed pressure sensitive
adhesive. No matter how well they worked, people thought the ones that
felt sticky to their finger touch worked best even if actual testing
I took one adhesive that was white when wet and added food coloring to
it then did a blind test. The same people chose the red as it stuck
better than the blue or white.
No, regular detergent will suds up too much even if you use less of it.
Many of the detergents are no HE and can be used in any machine and
the cost is about the same.
You don't need a lot, but the surfactants in the detergent are a big
help to the mechanical action to clean stuff. I always use less than
what the guy trying to sell the stuff recommends.
