Debunking common myths about laundry care

Myth #1: Using more detergent and water makes for a better clean

False. Modern washing machines are marvels at achieving maximum results while using minimal energy and water. But many people continue to believe, erroneously, that adding extra water or detergent will get clothes cleaner.

Myth #3: Detergent alternatives and dryer balls work just as well as traditional products

Mixed truth. Laundry is no stranger to the convoluted, often pseudo-scientific world of green alternatives that carry vague promises of being “natural” and “safe.””
