It causes more suds when washing dishes by hand (if you add soap
before the sink is full). Suds have little or no function except to
overflow the sink and make a mess, but people want them anyway. I
always fill the sink THEN add soap.
ttHAts what I read too. The original clothes detergents didn't make
any suds and no one would buy them. So they added something to make
suds. OTOH, I use the suds to tell if I have added enough soap or
detergent. It seems to me, that when there is too much dirt, there
are no suds in the washing machine, and that adding enooug detergent
to match the dirt allows some suds to be there.
