Searching for the right laundry detergent to use can be more difficult than many people might think. All laundry detergents and soaps come with many different ingredients and scents which can affect how well they clean your clothing as well as how they’ll work with your washing machine. Because of this, it’s important to take a look at the composition of the laundry detergent you use.

How Detergent Works

Laundry detergent is filled with surfactants which have special molecules that have two ends. On one end of the molecule is a special composition that helps to attract oil and grease in your clothing to remove them. The other end of it attracts water. These two ends working together help to move water around through your clothing and helps to remove the dirty materials in them.

            Fabric Softener

Sometimes laundry detergents will be mixed with fabric softeners. These work to not only soften your clothing to make them more comfortable to wear, but can also help with preventing electrical build-up in your clothing. For instance, if you’ve washed a sweater before you might find that sometimes after drying it the fabric of the sweater is very sensitive and gives you tiny electric shocks. Fabric softeners help to prevent this from occurring. They usually are released during the final washing rinse and can take the place of dryer sheets. 




If you accidentally spill something on your clothing, bleach is ideal to use. It’s made with special ingredients that feature oxygen molecules to help release these stains from your clothes. It can also help to sanitize your clothing with its bacteria eliminating abilities. However, bleach can’t be used with everything. You want to check to make sure your clothing is compatible with bleach. Otherwise, it could end up discoloring your clothing pieces.

Do You Have Sensitive Skin?

One problem that some people have is laundry rash. This is caused by the scents and dyes put into the laundry detergent. If you find that your skin sometimes becomes irritated after using laundry detergent to wash your clothes you’ll want to find a detergent that is dye and fragrance-free. These are hypoallergenic and will prevent your skin from breaking out due to an allergic reaction.

Detergent That is Compatible with Your Washer

Sometimes detergent doesn’t always work well with certain washers. Sometimes it can cause too much suds to occur in the washer which can overwhelm the washing machine. You want to check your washer type to make sure that the detergent you decide to use can work with it. Also be sure to check the different water levels and detergent fill lines your washer has to make sure you don’t overfill it with detergent.



It’s important to find the right detergent for both you and your washer. Detergents are made with many ingredients which can affect not only how well your washer will work, but also could cause problems with your skin. Always be sure to check the type of detergent you use to help make sure it will clean your clothes well and is hypoallergenic for those who have sensitive skin.The laundry detergents offered on are made of high-quality materials and have special mixes available for those who have sensitive skin.
