... just one tablespoon of detergent ?
I'm aware that who is used to a traditional toploader maybe needs a somewhat learning curve to get used to the proper measurement. Maybe one is so afraid of overdosing that goes too far away in the opposite way
Just *one* tablespoon ... so i checked here : "tablespoon" means the very same thing to all of us.
With a regular european podwer like Persil that is not enough even for this (3 kg / 7 lb)
In a regular 24" machine ( 5.5 kg) with a *full load*, *light soil* and *soft water* Henkel reccommends 100 ml of regular Persil that are *five* tablespoons and 60 ml/cc = *three* tablespoons for "smurf" washers
True that Megaperls are a 2X product, but it's also true that the average american frontloader has a double capacity than the average european 24" machine.
Maybe I miss something i'm not aware,
maybe the Persil you get is a 2X version of the one I use.
Anyway be aware that if you don't use enough detegent your whites will turn grey within some month and unwashed grease will make a buildup in the outer tub. The most common symptom are tiny clumps of "chewy" grease all spread on just washed laundry
