If you are one of the people who own a high efficiency front- or top-load washer, you may want to check out this information and learn some tips on how to use them in combination with high efficiency detergent.
This type of detergent has been specifically made and formulated to work with high efficiency machines which have been built to use less water throughout their washing cycles. If you have been owning one of these machines but in combination with regular run-of-the-mill detergent, you may have noticed an extreme overflow of bubbles throughout each cycle.Now, you may not have been thinking too much of this, but it is actually quite the disaster and you should stop doing that right away and switch over to the appropriate detergent for your futuristic high efficiency washer. Else you might need to call in the appliance repair service in Stoney Creek.
Problems that can be caused by excessive bubble production, aka “oversudsing” are:
• Washing Machine Malfunction: this can lead to expensive repairs, if not a fully broken machine that you will need to replace
• Prolonged Cycle Times: this will cost you time and water which is the exact opposite of what this high-tech washing machine is supposed to be there for
• Soap Residue: this is going to leave white stains all over your clothes and will force you to either throw them back in with the next load, or hand-wash them out which is also the exact opposite of what a washing machine is there for
• Failure of the Washing Machine Components: again, this may end with expensive repair costs
• Mildew and Mold: this will lead to an extremely unpleasant smell on your laundry
All of these should be more than enough to encourage you to make the right decision and switch over to high efficiency detergent. Finding these in the store should be rather easy since they are marked with a bold “HE” on the label.
Before you use your new and improved detergent, make sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully so you can follow them to the t and ensure you use the correct amount. Depending on the size of your laundry load, the toughness of the stains on your clothing, the level of hardness of your water, and the temperature of your water, this amount will vary so definitely keep that in mind before you think of eyeballing it.
