  • I use liquid because I only wash in cold water. Powdered detergent will not dissolve properly in cold water. I only use 1/2 the liquid detergent because the ultra really needs to be diluted! When detergent doesn't rinse out well enough, it causes your clothes to fade and wear out quicker.

  • Liquid. Powder always sticks to the dishes.

  • Liquid for me also, my powder always seems to stick a little to the clothes and not completely wash off.

  • Liquid. But we have a front loader and I think it's required. Either way, I prefer liquid :)

  • Liquid, I have a front loader and have never seen powered HE soap. I don't mind powdered though because I put the soap in the washer and let it dissolve a bit before putting the clothes in. Obviously only can happen with a top loader. My grandmother taught me that when I was a kid.
