When I bought a high efficiency washer I thought I would get cleaner clothes, use less water and do my part to be eco-friendly. What I didn't expect was having to shop around for a detergent that would actually get my clothes clean the first time I washed them. Someone suggested trying the Trader Joe's HE liquid laundry detergent. They had a few scented detergents but I have sensitive skin and prefer a scent and dye free detergent. This detergent will get average stains and grime out of clothing but for anything that's been soaked in and allowed to dry you are going to have to soak it then wash it. You can use this on all colors of clothing because it doesn't contain bleach but don't over do it when you are adding the detergent. If you add too much you will end up with a sticky feeling on the surface of the clothes because the soap didn't rinse out completely. If the feel tacky or sticky when you take them out of the washer simply put them back in and run them through a regular cycle without adding any soap. If you have a HE / high efficiency machine and are still looking for a detergent for normal day to day laundry needs, this is worth trying if you have a Trader Joe's in your area.
