    Default What laundry detergent do you use?

    I'm currently using Purex (store had a great sale on it) and it seems to be doing a good job and is not as costly as other brands. It irks me to spend so much money on the name brands (Tide, etc). What is your fav laundry detergent? I need some ideas please!!!

    I use Tide exclusively, I have found it gets our clothes cleaner. With two messy young girls in the house, it is important for me to have something that works efficiently the first time I use it. With other detergents I found I was washing some things twice to get all the stains out, even with pretreatment. That wastes both time AND money. And the Tide with Febreeze smells yummy!

    I love Purex, it smells so good. The problem I have is I can never find coupons for it, and coupons for Tide come regularily in the mail.

    I use to use what was on sale, but then I started using Wisk. Now that dh has the new army uniforms, I have to use Cheer. There are only a few laundry soaps that you can use to wash them. I hate having more than one detergent just in case I grab the wrong one, so I just started using Cheer on everything.

    I use them all. Whatever is on sale, but I like the smell of Gain. I always seem to use too much of any laundry detergent. I always end up putting more in, I don't know why because I know more is not always better, but having four kids I tend to overload the washer so I add more. I buy Purex most of the time becuase it is cheap. Does anyone else overload? I hate when my kids do laundry and put in four things when the hamper is loaded!!

    yeah. . I tend to overload too and it's only me in the household. . lol. And then I put more detergent in to compensate for the additional clothes. I have to be really conscious about not doing it. I'm 50 years old. . you'd think I'd learn. . !!!

    I use Purex, mostly because I got a ton of it on sale with coupons. It seems to do an okay job.

    I use liquid All Free and Clear. I have sensitive skin and most other detergents make me break out in a rash.
    “When you get to the end of all the light you know
    and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown,
    faith is knowing that one of two things will happen:
    you will be given something solid to stand on,
    or you will be taught how to fly.” - Edward Teller


    “Our Earth is degenerate in these later days;
    there are signs that the world is speedily
    coming to an end;
    bribery and corruption are common; children no
    longer obey their parents;
    every man wants to write a book and the
    end of the world is evidently approaching.”
    — From a translation of an inscription on
    an Assyrian clay tablet, circa 2800 B.C.E.


    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    courage to change the things I can,
    and the wisdom to know the difference

    Whatever is cheapest. Haven't really had a problem with any detergents not cleaning or anything... Era is usually really cheap, actually bought Save A Lot's brand the other day and it worked pretty good for me... doesn't smell as good as the more popular brands, but it gets the job done.

    Two detergents. Tide with Bleach for two of us. The third person in our family is allergic to Tide, so we use All Free and Clear and Clorox 2 in their laundry. We get all of these in huge containers at Sam's Club and they last a long time.
