What is the difference between HE laundry detergents and regular laundry detergent?
HE laundry detergents are High Efficiency detergents. They are designed to make fewer suds than regular detergents and to work in clothes washers that use less water. Regular laundry detergents create a higher amount of soap suds and need more water to rinse the detergent out of the clothes being washed. The cleaning power of the two types of laundry detergent is about the same. However, you need to use the proper detergent for the type of washer you are using so that the washer can clean the clothes to the best of its ability.

How does laundry detergent affect plant growth?
Laundry detergent contains powerful surfactants such as sodium dodecyl sulfate. These detergents characteristically aggregate lipids and denature proteins. When detergents are absorbed by a plant, the detergents can cause cell membranes to collapse and membranes to function improperly. This can cause part or all of a plant to die.
