How To: Choose the Right Detergent for Your HE Washer
I love the part in the movie Mr. Mom where Michael Keaton fights the washer that’s overfilled with soap. If you haven’t seen it (or just want to see it again), check it out.
Anyways, thinking about the washer fight in Mr. Mom got me thinking about all the questions we get from customers on which type of laundry soap to use in their new High-Efficiency Washing Machine.
Today’s High-Efficiency (HE) Washers use so little water compared to what the traditional washers used. It only makes sense that detergents have changed as well.
Now let’s take a step back… I wanted to make sure and cover the fact that YOU MUST use only “HE Detergent” in your High-Efficiency Washing Machine!!!
HE detergents are low sudsing and specially formulated for these water-saving washers. Use of a non-HE detergent in a HE washer can prevent it from washing or rinsing properly. HE detergents are readily available and are comparable in price to old-style detergents. Make sure and look for the symbol and ensure you are using the correct detergent for your high-efficiency washer.
Phew! Now that we got that over with…
Not all HE Detergents are created equal. WHAT?!? Why?
Well, let me explain. Some detergent manufacturers use binders, fillers and excess water in their formulations in order to increase the volume of the detergent in the bottle as well as increase profits. (The more detergent you have to use per load the more often you will have to buy detergent.) Futhermore, the excess of various substances (in the detergent) can be problematic for your washer and even cause mold buildup and/or premature failure of your washer!!!
Well, Idler’s has a solution. So, what can you do?
