Choosing the right washing powder scent

Why are clean clothes important?     Having unclean clothing is detrimental to how you look and feel, and can determine how others may view you as a person. Walking around in unclean clothes is noticeable, and if they have an odor, will actually deter people. If you want to look your best, and feel fresh, you need clean clothes. Nobody wants to walk around with stains on their clothes, and nobody wants to look at them either. Even if you are just spending the day at home, your clothing should be clean to avoid irritation and rashes. Remember, clean clothing starts with a solid washing machine and detergent.

Different types of washing powder and their scent

When it comes to washing powders there are plenty of types to choose from. Washing powders, commonly referred to as detergent, come in many different shapes and sizes. If you are a do it yourself kind of person, you can also craft your own washing powder. On the flip side the chemical based types of powder may promote skin irritation in individuals with sensitive skin. So while they may provide a cleaner wash overall, it may not be safe depending on the person. Most of the popular brands also offer both liquid and powder types, and there is no need to worry because plant based detergents are always available as alternatives if needed.

The unscented options

Anything that is unscented is generally going to be a bit safer for use, but be warned that there will not be a smell on your clothing. If you are the type of person that is better suited for scented clothing, than going with a scented option is probably a better option for you. In terms of the level of clean that they each provide, there is not a big difference between the two types of powder. A lot of unscented options generally offer powder that is also good for sensitive skin. So, if you are prone to irritation from detergents, an unscented might be the best option for you.

How to know which scent is right for you

If you want to know which scent is right for you, let your nose do the work. Most brands have all sorts of scents that they offer, and they can all provide you with a clean smell you like. If the smell from your detergent is not cutting it, you can also add dryer sheets to help amplify the scent even more. At the end of the day, the scent does not impact the detergent, so choose what makes you happy. If you have sensitive skin it is important to understand that most scented detergents will cause irritation, because of the added chemicals.

Effects different powders have on your washing machine

When it comes to using powder detergents, there are some things you should definitely keep in mind. Washing powder is not known for being the best for your washing machine, because it does not dissolve as smoothly compared to liquid types. This can lead to stains on your clothing if used incorrectly, but it can also lead to additional washing machine damage overtime if used in the wrong machine. Any type of powder that is not natural is likely going to cause more damage to your washing machine, because it may take longer for your machine to break the powder down. The good news is that if you have a modern washing machine, they’re generally able to handle plenty of detergents. There are also many reliable washing machine repair companies who can help out with any malfunctions.
