Washing powder and gel laundry detergent comparative analysis:

  • Temperature conditions

As is known washing powders and gel laundry detergents contain Enzymes that are effectively remove various protein contaminations. The peculiarity of Enzymes is that they work at a water temperature of up to 60 °С, if the temperature is higher they break up. In the composition of washing powder Enzymes are in the protective shell, which retains their properties even at high water temperatures and in the liquid laundry detergent they are in a gel form, so they work at a water temperature of up to 60°C.

  • Contamination level

A great amount of active components in the composition allows the washing powder easily to cope with severe contaminations. If you want just to refresh the appearance of clothes, it is better to use a gel laundry detergent.

  • Fabrics

Delicate fabrics (wool, silk, synthetic and mixed fibers, knitwear, etc.) are better to entrust the gel laundry detergent, it gently affects the fabric and cleans it even in cool water, while preserving the color of the product and not damaging the structure of the fabric fibers. In order to get maximum effect of washing, products made of cotton and linen are best washed with washing powder.

  • Frequency of use

A gel laundry detergent is perfect for daily and frequent laundry of the clothes as it contains fewer active components, in contrast to the washing powder, and more softly affects the fabric while preserving the fiber structure. Frequent laundry with washing powder can adversely affect the condition of the fabric and over time clothes wear out more quickly.

  • Laundry without traces of detergent stains 

At a water temperature of 30-40 °C, the granules of the washing powder can dissolve throughout the entire washing cycle, it is much more difficult to dissolve them if the washing powder is dampened or clumped into lumps. Thus, it is more difficult to wash undissolved particles from fabric fibers, as a result, traces of detergent stains remain on clothes. In addition, washing powder often includes electrolytes, which can also cause the appearance of stains on clothes.

Gel laundry detergent is a liquid, which has no particles that can get stuck between the fabric fibers. Consequently, after its use, stains do not remain on clothes.

  • Dosing

If the washing powder is usually filled "by eye" into the main detergent drawer, the bottle cap of the washing gel acts as a dispenser, and the required amount of liquid agent can be accurately measured.

  • Storage conditions

Gel laundry detergent in storage is much easier, because it is in a bottle with a tight-fitting cap, while the washing powder after opening is in most cases uncovered and can pour out or damp.

So what is better: washing powder or gel laundry detergent?

After having analyzed all the features of the means for laundry, we can safely conclude that in the house it is better to have both gel laundry detergent and washing powder. Only combining or alternating the use of these products will help to preserve the purity, appearance and structure of the fabric fibers for a long time.
