Sadly, 6 out of 10 washing machine owners are not using them correctly. Despite having a washing machine, majority of people still scrub their cuffs and collars with bar soap before putting them in the machine. They believe that good old-fashioned hand washing will do the trick. Well, this just wastes your time, detergent and money. A machine is programmed to remove stains from your clothes better than any hands ever will. All you have to do is tweak the wash settings on your machine and drop your shirts in and let the machine do the job.

A common practice among washing machine owners is using hand washing soap in the washing machine because its cheaper. This doesn’t help because you actually end up using more detergent because it isn’t optimized for your machine. It also produces more foam so you’d need a lot more water to rinse it out.

The trick is to use a washing machine detergent like Ariel Automatic Washing Machine powder to wash your clothes. Washing machine detergents are designed to work with the mechanics of the washing machine to clean your clothes faster.

With Ariel Automatic, a little detergent goes a long way and one is able to clean clothes with just a small amount.
