As detergents have improved, more and more options have become available. There are biological and non-bio options, bleach and bleach free variants. That’s before we get to the different scents, too.
Guide to basics: So where to start?
Bleach and enzymes are used to remove stains and whiten garments. So these are best for getting really white whites. Powders contain bleach, so try Ariel Powder for your white load for whites that shine bright.
Enzymes, meanwhile, are proteins that break down stains and grease. While perfect for most clothes, some people prefer detergents without enzymes, mainly for very delicate clothes. Non-bio detergents contain no enzymes.
How much to use?
With all these detergents, though, the most important thing is knowing how much to dose. Too much and you’re wasting Ariel detergent, while your garments may get detergent marks on them. Too little and you may not get clean clothes after the wash.
Always check the dosing instructions before dosing into the washing machine: the amount of washing and how dirty it is plays a part here.
