Question may be off-topic but this group was the closest I could
find. With nearly every laundry detergent out there being
"concentrated," I'm finding that the wash loads are not rinsing well -
even after running it through several times with just water! Can
anyone out there recommend a laundry detergent that washes but
completely rinses out the soap? Having a tough time finding detergent
that is not "concentrated". Thanks in advance -- Brian
If it is concentrated, you only need to use a small bit. I have noticed
that the scoop provided in the concentrated version I get is much larger
than the quantity the directions on the box say to use. I've replaced
it with a measuring spoon.
We have a water softener because the water around here is very hard.
The result is that a little bit of liquid detergent makes a very large
amount of suds and I have to really watch it or the soap doesn't
completely rinse out. I have started using white vinegar in the
little cup that is supposed to be used for water softener. I use Arm
& Hammer for Sensitive Skin and only use about half the recommended
amount. I tried other detergents but they made my husband's skin
I use automatic liquid as do most here in the UK- as automatics are so
common here. It doesn't make bubbles and I have always felt without bubbles
it doesn't wash clean, which is ridiculous because it does. It washes out
far easier than powder. My machine rinses four times including a conditioner
rinse and I have not had a problem with anything being stiff since I started
with the auto liquid.
I do a combination of things. First off, I use approx. half the amount
of detergent called for on the package. Second, if I'm still noticing
soap residue in the clothes, I will use white vinegar in the rinse
cycle. I pour it in where the fabric softener is supposed to go. The
vinegar removes the soap residue, and any vinegar odor is gone by the
time the clothes come out of the dryer.
