Washing Clothes with Powder Laundry Detergent. While it may seem that liquid and single-dose detergent pacs dominate the detergent aisles, for some people, powder detergent remains a laundry room staple. 

Whether you’re motivated by its cardboard packaging, or the ability to customize how much detergent you use, powder detergent like all® free clear powder detergent can be a great option. 

If you’re using laundry detergent powder, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind: 

  • Read the package instructions carefully to fully understand how to measure the detergent for your respective load size. 
  • You can use powder detergent in a front-load washer, however, you will add it directly to the washer drum and not to the detergent dispenser.
  • Pre-treating stains is possible with powder detergent, but requires a little extra effort. Wet the stain and then mix the powder detergent and water to make a paste. Rub the paste into the stain, and then add to normal wash load. 
  • Detergent should be stored out of reach from children and pets and should always be kept in its original packaging.
