  • Yeah, I think that was the kind I used. Either that or the Dollar Store brand. It worked great.

  • Works fine. Water temperature and detergents are not what washes clothes... it is agitation. That is why you should never over load a washing machine. We, as a society, actually use too much detergent to wash our clothes. I buy the cheap stuff and dilute it, add a 1/2 c of borax and use a little vinegar in the rinse cycle. My clothes come out great....

  • My husband bought the Sun brand "Oxy Clean" for his work laundry, and he said that he thought it faded the colors of the towels he washed, which the regular Oxy Clean didn't. That's just what he reported--I don't know because I don't use either for our household laundry. He said he would NOT buy the generic again.

  • I think it works just as well for regular washing. If I have a really tough stain and want to soak it out, I prefer the real "OxyClean."
