How to avoid suds in laundry detergent.

Suds in the washing machine may look beneficial

Along with the suds, detergent chemicals and soils will float. Whether it is powder or liquid detergent, your detergent likely contains surfactant.

Among other chemical reactors, surfactant (a dry hard chip from the manufacturer) dissolves in water and gives the wash water a thicker consistency.

While doing a load of wash, contained within the detergent bubbles, dirt and grime are inherent. When the washer’s first drain & spin cycle begin, water drains out and the floating contaminated suds sink into the fabrics. The dirt and soap may become lodged in the fabrics by the detergent’s thickener (surfactant) and the pressure of the spin cycle. The second rinse and spin cycle begins and this too may not purge the detergent residue chemicals or allergens as the fabric fibers and surfactants are constraining. When you put your fabrics into the dryer, the drying cycle will harden the surfactant, which also often contain detergent residue. Now you need softener because of the surfactant.

Surfactant and detergent chemicals are agents to avoid in your clothes, against your skin or in your air; not to mention they pollute our waters.

The only SURFACTANT & SUDS-FREE detergent we know of is Rain Laundry Detergent.

Mineral Methods, maker of Rain Laundry Detergent, is the original developer and authority in surfactant-free all natural laundry detergent. Using Rain Laundry Detergent, soils sink to the bottom of the wash-basin. In-fact, when using Rain Laundry Detergent, it is recommended for normal conditions, you skip doing a second rinse.
