Getting the dose of laundry detergent right can make or break your laundry results.
Find out just how much washing powder you need to use to suit the dirtiness of your clothes, the hardness of your water, and the size of your load.
How to dose washing powder
When it comes to washing your clothes, getting the dose right is important. Too much laundry detergent doesn’t necessarily result in better stain removal. Not only that, too much detergent can cause an excess of suds, which can prompt too many rinse cycles, or can simply leave your clothes dirty and dull. On the other hand, too little detergent may not get those stains lifted off.
Finding the right dose depends on various factors, such as:
How dirty your clothes are.
How large the laundry load is.
How hard the water is in your area.
Once you know the size of your load, you can measure out the right quantity of washing powder by following these measurements:
The good news is there is no need to get the scales out when you have Ariel’s scoop, which helps you get the dosage right, easily. If you’re interested in knowing more about dosing correctly, read our dosing for your washing machine size.
