I only like to use liquid, cause it seems the powder stuff, doesn't really disolve that well. What about you?

We use the powder detergent. What alot of people don't realize is that you have to let alot of water get in the machine before you put clothes in the machine. That is why the powder detergent doesnt desolve. Most people stick clothes in then pour the detergent. I am not saying most do this, but alot do.

I personally prefer liquid over Dry laundry detergent, and feel it does a better job in getting your clothes clean. There is nothing worse than bringing clothes from your Washer, and still seeing clumps of Laundry detergent on them.

We prefer the liquid detergent, mostly because it's usually cheaper than the powdered.

I only use liquid for my laundry detergent. I heard from this person who came to fix my dryer few weeks ago that these days, newer model of washer dont take powder detergent good as liquid detergent. He told me that powder detergent mess up your washer. But Im not sure if that true or not.

I prefer liquid detergent.Becz sometimes the powder wont dissolve and it just spread in all the cloths and remain even after washing.

I only use liquid, because we were having some trouble with our washer not draining right, before the rinse mode, and after it filled up again, so we had someone come and look out it, and I had only used powder at that time, it had been getting through and clumping up and causing a clog, so we only use liquid now.

I use both and love it. I never have a problem with the powder. I put the puwder in it's slot. run my machine when the powder finishes. I load my clothes in. I have my own washer. so this may also help. I will never use public washers even if my machine breaks.

I used powder before and your right it doesn't dissolve all the way, some of it stayed on my clothes which bugged me. Liquid gets the job done and I think it makes my clothes smell even better.

I used to use powder and had the same problem with it not desolving properly so I switched to liquid. Now I LOVE EVERYTHING about Cold Water Tide and I will never switch to powder again!
