How to Use Single-Dose Laundry Detergent

How to use laundry detergent pacs


It’s hard not to love single-dose laundry detergent pacs. Their pre-measured, mess-free format is inherently convenient, and they’re often available in the same variants as their liquid laundry detergent counterparts.

Using single-dose laundry detergent pacs is a little different than liquid laundry detergent. Single-dose options like the all® free clear Mighty Pacs® or all free clear MEGA PACS™ detergent work in all laundry machine types and water temperatures, however, for best results, you should always add the detergent pac to the washer drum before adding any clothes.

For stains, it’s a good idea to have the liquid version of your single-dose detergent on-hand in case pretreatment is necessary. Remember, when using single-dose detergent

  • Safely store your single-dose detergent pacs out of reach from children and pets, and always store in the original packaging.
  • You can always scale the number of pacs you use per load, depending on how large the load is, and the level of soil and stains on your clothes. Follow package instructions for more guidance.
  • Always add the detergent pac before adding your clothes to ensure that the pac properly dissolves.
