Which is better: powder or liquid detergent?
Yes, what is really best? Powder detergent or liquid detergent? What is best for the environment, us and the clothes? We sort out all the question marks and compare them in terms of purity, environmental aspects and from an economic point of view.
Powder detergent is the very best when running a machine with white laundry. It's because powder form often contains a small amount of bleach which allows the white laundry to retain its whiteness. The small amount of bleach is usually not found in liquid detergent, which makes the powder detergent superior when it comes to running a machine with white laundry. The powder detergent should also be better than the liquid detergents at removing stains.
In Germany tests were performed where the powder detergent was set against the liquid detergents, where it was clear that the powder detergents were superior to the liquid detergents when it came to getting the laundry completely clean. The conclusion was that the liquid detergents could not compete at all with the powdered detergents.
Why so many people choose the liquid detergent then, you may be wondering. Maybe you are even one of those who use this type of detergent before the powdered agent and are aware of the benefits of it. There are benefits, both when it comes to agility and the appearance of clothes after washing. The biggest reason why many people use the liquid detergent is as simple as it is most flexible detergent to use. It is easy to dose and the detergent does not get stuck in the compartment but goes smoothly into the machine and above all - it leaves no traces on your clothes after you have run a wash.
This is probably one of the biggest reasons why many people opt out of the powder detergent: lumps can easily form in the compartment, among other things, which makes it more difficult to keep this clean. In addition, there is a risk that the powder settles as deposits on the clothes, but this only happens if you overdose - which you should avoid as much as possible. Here you can read more about why you should absolutely not overdose and what overdose can lead to.
Another interesting aspect with the liquid detergent is that it can easily bacteria are formed in humid environments so in many cases manufacturers have to add preservatives to the liquid detergent. However, this agent is not found in the eco-labeled, liquid detergents. But from an environmental point of view, the powder detergent is more advantageous as it is more concentrated, which in the long run means smaller dosages but also fewer transports. In addition, the powder detergent is cheaper than the liquid detergent.
