Designed for use in all regular and high-efficiency washing machines, Woolite Everyday high efficiency liquid laundry detergent has a special formula that cleans all types of fabrics and helps keep colors bright and vivid without causing fading, shrinking or stretching, so clothes look like new for longer.
High efficiency laundry detergent is detergent that has been specially formulated for use in front-loading, energy efficient washing machines. It is manufactured differently from standard laundry detergent. Front loading washing machines and machines branded “high efficiency” typically require high efficiency laundry detergent. High efficiency laundry detergent can also be used in traditional washing machines.
High efficiency machines use roughly a quarter of the water of traditional washers. They usually operate on a front-load system where clothes are loaded into a drum that cleans not by spinning and agitating, but by lifting and dropping. Most high efficiency laundry detergent contains the same cleansing agents as traditional laundry detergent, but it does not usually foam or make suds at all.
Traditional laundry detergent makes far more suds than a high efficiency washing machine can handle. Laundry detergent manufacturers solved this problem by introducing high efficiency laundry detergent. This kind of detergent is usually marketed as “HE laundry detergent,” and features a uniform HE logo that consumers can recognize from brand to brand. Almost all brands of detergent make both a standard and a HE product.
