hello friend! well i use them both, because for the clothes I use washing powder- i think it is the better choice( i also don't have a wash machine) and for the socks and things like these I use a washing soap bar, because it wash them better!

Since most of the time i need to dry my clothes indoor, so i prefer to use washing powder. I ever tried the washing soap bar but seems it's only good if you are drying your clothes outdoor. I use anti-malodour washing powder, to prevent my clothes from the stink smell, when drying them indoor. It's important to choose the type of washing powder or soap according to your needs and budget. There is an anti-malodour soap available in the market recently but i haven't tried it.

We have a washing machine and dryer here. Though when I lived with friends our washer went out or went phooky, and so I had to wash my underwear in the sink at one point. Kind of odd to do, but it didn't take long and to dry them I just rung them out.

I also don't have the luxury of owning a washing machine. I also soak my clothes in powder first - separating the whites from the colored clothes, of course - before scrubbing them. I put in a lot of soap in the soak solution so that I don't need to use bar soap afterwards, I just use the soap that's there. I'm quite particular about washing though, so even if I have soaked it for at least 30 minutes I still scrub my clothes afterwards. I use a scrub brush because I get scabs on my hands when I scrub too vigorously and it gets irritated with too much contact with soap (I don't use gloves). Call me borderline obsessive-compulsive, but I like the feeling of putting on clean clothes. I also use fabric conditioner cause I also don't own a clothes iron. Plus it makes my clothes smell nice. I hate washing clothes though. It's one of those household chores that I just keep on putting off. So I usually end up with a months' pile of clothes that have to be washed. And I end up spending an entire day just washing clothes. Afterwards my body feels so sore. Makes me kind of look up to washerwomen, you know, those who make a living just hand-washing other peoples' clothes. We have that here in our country. They spend day in and day out just washing clothes for a living. It's really back-breaking work.

actually i bring my laundry to laundry shop since i dont have space to let my clothes dry. though i only wash my undies and other light tops. most of the time i soak them with powder at night to take off some dirt then the next day i will wash them with bar soap to completely take off the dirt. it will be easy to wash clothes if you soak it first with powder than just by bar alone.

it depends on the availability of the supplies at home. haha! i can use both but i like to use the powder than the bar. hehe! we are fortunate to have washing machine, it's more convenient. hehe! Of course we use powder in washing machine and if ever we handwash the bar saves the day!

i first use powder to soak my clothes with water to easily take off dirt, then use bar but if i can still see bubbles with it i will wash them with just powder and just use brush to totally clean it.
