Regarding liquid laundry detergent.
Why do they have to put ODOR into this stuff? I have tried different
brands and different scents. ALL of them make my clothing smell like
perfume. Maybe women like this sort of thing, but I DONT!
I dont want my clothes to have ANY smell after I wash them, except to
smell clean, which should mean NO SMELL!
Why cant they make this stuff WITHOUT SCENT?
And while I'm on the subject, I have always wondered if laundry
detergent is really needed. It's the water that cleans the clothing, so
what good is laundry detergent? Does it really help clean the clothing,
or is this just something that our parents and grand parents used, and
now we think we need it? I recall once starting a load of laundry, and
then I realized that I did not have any detergent. Since the clothes
were already wet, I washed them as usual, and they seemed to come out
just as clean as if I had used detergent. So, why do we need it at all?
I later thought I could have probably squirted some dish detergent into
the washer, but by then it was too late. I'd expect both would be about
the same sort of thing. I know that dishes require detergent, because it
help cut the grease, but clothing is usually not greasy, just dirty from
contact with filthy objects and sometimes contact with mud and soil. So,
unless the clothing is soiled with something like automotive grease, it
would seem that detergent is not doing much of anything except selling
