The picture below shows pint glasses filled with hot water from the tap (obviously, it has since cooled, and doesn't look any different). I added one load's worth of laundry detergent to each pint glass.
For detergent, I used:
- 1.5 Tbsp Bare Naked Babies Classic Rock from Rockin Green (as per their directions for 1 load in a HE washer of 1-2 Tbsp)
- Slightly less than 1/4 cup of liquid Tide (1 load's worth according the package - I used the entire package)
- 1 tsp. of Norwex Ultra Power Plus (UPP) (recommended use for a HE washer is 1/2 to 1 tsp - I used the higher amount)
|Norwex UPP Ultra Power Plus has no fillers, dyes or fragrance|
I've had a few friends contact me with results of their own laundry detergent experiment using other detergents. ECOS, All Free and Clear, Dreft, and the Costco brand detergents all leave behind cloudy water. The pods are no different - they also leave colored, cloudy water. It may not show anything significant, but it is enough for me to make the change to UPP for my own family's laundry. If you're interested in trying out the UPP, or being included in my newsletter to receive exclusive offers for my customers, please let me know!
*UPP is recommended for washing all of the microfiber products from Norwex
