Thank you, sshrivastava
I have washed laundry with half the recommended amount of any detergent for about 20 years now, since a dear friend who just received her Ph.D. in chemical engineering told me something like when the detergent is forced to stretch by using half, it actually cleans better. I have always used Shout to help remove grease spots or stains. Then, on this Forum, sshrivastava has been espousing the use of the recommended amount of whatever detergent you are using, especially to suspend the dirt out of the laundry.
Well! The last 2 days I followed directions on "Tide With Bleach" powder (and "Arm & Hammer Clean Burst" powder with added Borax), double hot water washes, double warm water rinses, and I'm here to tell ya I have never smelled cleaner clothes (may even not switch to "Tide Free" powder) and every stain or spot is taken care of without Shout. Truly amazing for this old dog to learn this new trick.
Thank you, thank you, sshrivastava, and everyone else (suburbanmd and others whom I can't think of right now) who takes the time to share his/her knowledge on this Forum.
