How to Choose Laundry Detergent

Laundry detergent is the key ingredient in any laundry routine. With so many different brands and varieties out there, how do you choose the detergent that is right for you? Here are a few things to consider when you’re choosing laundry detergent


Liquid detergent really is the best option. It’s reasonably priced, easy to store, and dissolves well in water. Powder detergent is okay, but sometimes it can leave residue and often contains more chemicals than liquid detergent. Stay away from pods, as they are expensive, can be a health hazard for children, and sometimes do not work well with laundromat machines.


Laundry detergent comes into a lot of contact with your body, so you definitely want to be mindful of its impacts. Be sure to check the ingredient list to make sure there is nothing you’re allergic to. Plus, detergents with fragrances can sometimes irritate sensitive skin.Particularly if someone in your household is sensitive, you may also want to look out for non-toxic detergents, which can be much gentler (and environmentally friendly). 

#3: COST

You don’t want laundry day to cost you a fortune. Be sure to consider cost as you’re making your selection. Don’t forget to factor in how much detergent is required per load. A more expensive detergent is not always better—there are plenty of good detergents that are also cost-efficient. 


Of course, you want a laundry detergent that is going to work well. Do a little research and read user reviews to make sure that the detergent you use will adequately remove stains and keep your clothes clean. 


Every washing machine is a little different. Be sure to ask ahead about what is recommended for the machines at your laundromat
