Am I using too much or too little washing detergent? Does it really matter?

The quick answer is yes, it does matter, and this article will explain how working out the perfect amount can be made very easy indeed.

Too much detergent or too little can lead to poor washing results.

 

Too much?

Using too much detergent – even by a little – leads to significantly higher water and energy consumption when washing. Visible detergent residues can be left on clothing, which can trigger skin irritation and allergies.  It’s surprisingly easy to use too much laundry detergent.  If you have a tendency to pour in a bit more for good measure, there’s a good chance that you’re using more detergent than you need.  Using too much laundry detergent doesn’t just have an unfavourable effect on your clothes but it’s also washing money down the drain.

 

Too little?

Using too little detergent can lead to poorer washing results. Stains won’t be completely removed and could be left on clothes permanently. Insufficient detergent can also result in discolouration and unpleasant odours.

 

So how much detergent do I need to use for my load of laundry?

Well, it depends on a number of factors.  How many clothes you are washing.   How dirty your clothes are. What type of detergent you are using. Whether you have hard or soft water.

 

The solution? Everything’s just right with i-DOS.

The i-DOS intelligent dosing system from Bosch automatically senses exactly the right amount of detergent and water to use, as well as the correct temperature, whatever your load. Meaning perfectly clean laundry guaranteed for every load, all with minimum effort from you. Everything’s just right with i-DOS.

 

How?

All you need to do is fill the large washing machine drawer with 1.3 litres of liquid detergent. You can then wash multiple loads of laundry without needing to top it up. Sensors inside the washing machine detect the type of fabric, load volume in the drum and degree of soiling, and adjust the detergent dose, water and temperature accordingly.

 

Why?

Washing in this way not only helps you to achieve perfect results but also protects the environment. By cutting down additional wash and rinse cycles resulting from using too much detergent, your laundry cycle will be quicker and more efficient, saving energy, time and money. You can save up to 7,062** litres of water per year.

** Saving potential with an average of 220 washing loads/year, source: wfk,
