Can you use regular laundry soap in HE washers?

Answer . No, it's best to use ivory or another baby soap (preferably liquid soap) for laundry. Baby's skin is very tender and it stops rashes. Ivory or other liquid baby soaps can be used on your own delicate clothing.
If the soap is spilling out of the washer, then stop the wash cycle, set it to spin, and let it spin the soapy water out. Then reset the washer for a full wash and rinse cycle to get out all of the soap. If you set it for a rinse cycle only, it won't remove all of the suds, resulting in dingy laun…dry. (MORE)
Does arm and hammer liquid laundry soap make a high efficiency liquid laundry soap for the new energy efficient washers?
Most liquid soap manufacturers try to produce their product to be the most efficient they're able, and they type of washer usually doesn't have much to do with it. If you really want to get better cleaning, use `20 Mule Team Borax` brand if you can still find it, or some other brand that contains… borax. Borax is a natural mineral that tends to help any detergent clean better and if I remember corerctly, it helps by adding additional oxygen to the wash water. Just a tip to help you out I also have a high efficiency washing machine and you can put 1/4 -1/2C arm and hammer baking soda in the rinse cycle of the wash which is a great alternative, Baking soda is a natural odor neutralizer being 100% pure sodium Bicarbonate. It also boosts your laundry detergent to make it work better by adjusting the pH of your water to neutralize the acid. No more stinky towels or clothes! Another thing that I have tried is using 1/4 C of distilled white vinegar in the bleach slot in the wash to effectively get rid of any odors that linger on your clothes. The acid in white distilled vinegar is too mild to harm fabrics but strong enough to dissolve the alkalies in soaps & detergents. Besides removing soap it prevents yellowing and acts as a fabric softener and static cling reducer and attacks mold and mildew. I really only use the vinegar when I have to rewash clothes that I left in the wash too long and they got that Mildew smell It works awsome for that, however in a regular wash is also seems to neutralize the soap smell too and I love my clothes to smell like laundry detergent so I pretty much only use it to get rid of undesired smells but if you want your clothes to smell like nothing the vinegar is awsome!

Have it professionally cleaned. Or if you live in a very dry, windy place, just bring it outside and rinse it off.
Stop the washer, set to drain and rinse. Start the full cycle wash over without soap.
How do you use papaya soap should i use it as regular soap or do i apply it and let it stay on for a while?
Papaya contains papain extract, a natural enzyme that promotes skincell renewal. Many people report their best result is to leave thissoap on the skin to dry for about 5 minutes before washing off.
Here's how you can make a homemade laundry soap: To make this product, you need a cup of white vinegar, a cup of baking soda, a cup of washing soda and Â¼ cup liquid castile soap. Get all the ingredients in a large container and start stirring it well and then transfer it to different bottles. Co…ver the bottles later and seal them. Whenever you will be using the soap, you will be able to find gels in the bottles. Break the gel by stirring the soap and always store the detergent in a cool and dry place. (MORE)
A lot of these products in our everyday lives have harmful chemical ingredients. In some cases these are listed clearly, but few of us are able to discern the truth from the scientific jargon. In others, the list of ingredients is very unclear. Either way, some of these chemicals can affect us, o…ur families, and the environment in very negative ways. Laundry detergent is one such product that often times contains vague information on its list of ingredients. The residues left behind are potentially harmful as well. Even if your clothes may seem very fresh and clean, they may actually just be loaded down with harsh toxins. A list of ingredients found on a common brand of laundry detergent leaves a consumer with a lot of questions. For instance, such ingredients included a buffering agent, stabilizer, brightening agent, and fragrance. This confusing description raises even more questions. What causes that lovely fragrance? What cleans them? When a closer look is taken, the list becomes shocking at the harmful chemicals found in such a common product as laundry detergent. As a consumer, it becomes clear that it may be time to take control and use a safer alternative. When your detergent claims to offer brighter and whiter clothes, you may want to rethink your decision. The "optical brighteners" found on the label of one detergent are actually synthetic, or man-made chemicals. They work by turning ultraviolet wavelengths into visible light that makes clothes appear whiter, yet does not really make them any cleaner . Some of their bad effects are that they can cause bacterial mutations and are poisonous to fish. They can also cause allergic reactions to the skin when they are exposed to the sun. Another common selling feature of laundry detergents is fragrance. A lot say that they leave your clothes "smelling fresher" or "lemon fresh". The artificial fragrances found in detergents can often be derived from petrol. They can harm the environment because they are not biodegradable. Research has shown that these artificial fragrances can have toxic effects on fish and mammals. More importantly, they can cause skin and eye irritation and allergies . These detergents may in fact create whiter and better smelling garments, but the harmful price being paid for your family and on the environment is hardly worth it..

They used a combination of sal soda (sodium carbonate), borax (sodium borate) and unslacked lime (calcium oxide). This was boiled and mixed with a finely cut bar of soap to create a liquid soap. From the Iowa Settlers Manual of 1881.
the liquid soap was -- in august 1960 it entered the united states test market. and in December 1961 it went nation-wide.
Nope itll ruin the washer!! And itll start to smoke....happened to me and i had to buy a brand new washer :(
Dish liquid is designed to generate a lot of suds. A dishwasher cycle will stir up excessive suds that the machine won't be able to rinse away. Some dishwashers will stop or break down if this happens. If you're out of the regular dish washing detergent, rinse the dishes well before you put them in …and then run the dishwasher without detergent. The hot water and dry cycle will sanitize dishes sufficiently. Or, put the dishes in, close the door and leave it until you can get some detergent. (MORE)
No, according to Consumer Reports, soaps made for household uses (such as laundry or dish soap) can strip protective waxes and coatings. They can cause eventual harm to your paint job.

Can concentrated powder laundry soap cause allergic reaction to skin versus regular powder laundry soap?
If you are allergic to a particular laundry soap, the concentratedvariety will cause the same reaction. The larger the exposure tothe allergen, the worse the reaction will be.
HE laundry detergent is formulated to produce fewer suds similar to automatic dish washer detergent. Supposedly, it is fine to use in a regular washer, and you would use the same quantity as you would in an HE machine (using the recommended amount of detergent as indicated on the product packaging).… For more information, see related link below. Clarification: If you do use a HE (High Effenciency) laundry detergent in a regular washer (non high effenciency), you may need to use a bit more than you would in a HE washer, since regular washers use more water, therefore diluting the detergent/water ratio. What you cannot do, however, is use regular detergent in a HE washer. (MORE)
Typical pressure washers dilute any chemical 10x when sprayed. So a concentrate is recommended. Any liquid soap can do. The big box stores have many types. It often is a matter of what you are cleaning off, ie.. oil, mildew, rust stains, deck discoloration, and the surface, ie.. concrete, asphalt, w…ood, etc. Check manufactures labels to make the best choice. Some cleaning soaps may say all purpose, but the best results can be gotten when carefully reading the manufacturer's recommendation. The soap does not go through the pump, but it is important to run clear water through the siphon tube and injector assembly when done. (MORE)
HE laundry detergents are High Efficiency detergents. They aredesigned to make fewer suds than regular detergents and to work inclothes washers that use less water. Regular laundry detergents create a higher amount of soap suds andneed more water to rinse the detergent out of the clothes beingwashe…d. The cleaning power of the two types of laundry detergent is aboutthe same.

I have purchased it at a Walmart Market and a regular Walmart.According to the Simplicityclean web site, it is not available atall Walmart stores.
Absolutely not. It will foam up and start leaking out around the seals of your dishwasher door.
You can wash laundry with yucca. There are a lot of different types of yucca. I have soapweed yuccas, (yucca glauca). As I understand all yuccas have natural saponins (soap qualities), but you may want to check which yucca you have, and what parts of the plant to use. I use the roots, but I've he…ard of being able to use the leaves and stem too. The root is stringy and fibrous. If you just throw the root in your washing machine, your going to have a mess. I kind of beat the root up a bit, to break it open, then I put it in a cheese cloth type bag. I use a WonderWash, a hand cranked barrel washer. I throw the bag in and agitate with my clothes. I use yucca to wash my body and hair too, I stick some of the broken up root right in a used water bottle, leaving some head space to shake it up. You're not going to see the lather and suds that most people are use to with commercial laundry soap. I think the trick there is adding glycerin. Good luck! i can see you right now (MORE)
If you wash a lens cloth with normal laundry soap will it harm your eyeglasses in any way when you use the cloth to clean the glasses?
Not if you rinse out all the detergent residue from the cloth before drying and using it.
That is because a very small residue of soap can remain in clothing after it is washed, and this can irritate sensitive skin, such as that of a baby, if the soap is too strong.
I just did (in a real pinch) and it seems to be going just fine.
Pressure washers use an attachment called a chemical injector to siphon soap into the water stream. The chemical injector works based on the the physics principle known as the Venturi Effect. The Venturi Effect occurs when there is a restriction in a medium through which water or air is flowing. Thi…s restriction causes an increase of speed in the flow, but a drop in pressure. A chemical injector uses this drop in pressure to siphon chemicals or soap into the water stream. With a chemical injector, this drop in pressure is achieved by using a nozzle with a large opening. There are two main types of chemical injectors: . Downstream injector- This type of chemical injector is placed on the outlet side of the pump. A special nozzle is used (as mentioned above) to decrease the pressure to that the chemical can be siphoned. . Upstream injector- This type of chemical injector is placed on the inlet side of the pump to inject the chemical into the water before it enters the pump. This type of injector is also known as a "high pressure" injector because the chemical is pumped through the pressure washer, and is thus released at the high pressures with the water. This is the only type of chemical injector that you can use different nozzles with. Since the chemical is injected using the low pressure inlet hose (garden hose), you do not need a special nozzle to decrease the pressure on the outlet side. This type of chemical injector is usually not recommended, however, due to the fact that the chemical is circulated through the pump. This can cause seals, such as the pump's o-rings, to wear out faster. (MORE)
yes. It's only clumped by moisture, and you are adding it to even more water.
Yes! I use borax in the homemade laundry soap that I make. Here is a link on how to make it. http://sarahsworld-sarahsworld.blogspot.com/2011/04/how-to-make-all-natural-laundry-soap-at.html
Absolutely. You can use an HE detergent in a non HE washer without issue. For more information about HE laundry check out LaundryHE.com, which is powered by Wisk. -The LaundryHE.com Team
Either. I buy Cheer because it costs less but to me they are the same.
Yes you can use dish soap in a dish washer. Use 2 small drops only, and add a cup or so of baking soda. Otherwise it will cause a lot of suds, both inside and outside the dishwasher.
Yes, it causes rashes. I bought a bottle and washed my sons work clothes and socks with Purex. He came down with swollen ankles and could hardly walk. Missed work and we could not figure it out. Why the feet, ankles and legs were swollen. Then he wore his work shirts, came home and his neck had welt…s all round his neck and back. Now rewashing all of his laundry to get the Purex out his clothes. I guess when you the manufacture puts Rat Poison in their product...its no wonder people have rashes and get ill. My son's feet are still swollen and the rash is still visible. Be careful with this product. (MORE)
get it wet, and rub it on spots instead of a pretreater. Or, shredit and use it in place of laundry detergent
They may not be rinsed out thoroughly and could there could still be a residue on the baby's diapers, which could be irritating to the baby's skin.

no not unless you want a bubble bath in your kitchen :) Yes it is possible but keep it nontoxic and yes there ma y be a ton of bubbles in the kitchen :)
You can, but you would have to use it very sparingly - perhaps 1/2 of normal amount. HE washers work best with HE detergent - conventional detergent sudses much too heavily.
Laundry soap, like many other soaps and detergents, is basic, meaning that it has a pH over 7.

No. Do not use it. It is very dangerous, and it's not intended for washing clothes. It will destroy your clothes and could give you a bad reaction. If you are trying to remove a stain, try a hot wash or a stain remover maid for clothes, and read the instructions!
NO. Never use anything that is not designed for use on a horse, it can cause an allergic reaction or even chemical burns. It is best to stick to shampoos designed and marketed for horses.
no because it will not rinse and when it is dry or comes out it will be small and it will not un cruncle
Laundry detergent can be purchased from a variety of retail outlets and box stores. For the best prices, discount stores like Walmart and KMart sell both name brands and off-brands of laundry detergent.
One can purchase cheap laundry soap from places that have it on sale, wholesalers or dollar stores. However, it is usually cheaper for one to just make their own laundry soap at home.
General retailers (e.g., Target, Walmart, Costco, K Mart, Woolworth's, etc.) and supermarkets (e.g., Food Lion, Kroger/King Soopers/City Market, Harris Teeter, Winn Dixie, Piggly Wiggly's, Safeway, etc.), and drug retailers (e.g., Walgreens, CVS, etc.) are the common places to find it. Some niche m…arket retailers, who cater to a particular crowd, will carry it, as well. For example, truck stop chains such as Pilot/Flying J, Love's, and TA/Petro. (MORE)
