How do you wash clothes?

Do you put your washing powder in while the water is running? Or do you put the washing powder on the clothes?

  • Toss the clothes in, put my liquid soap in (I don't use powder) on top of my clothes, then add Clorox 2 with my Downy ball for fabric softener =)

  • I put the detergent in while the water is running then put my clothes on top. It help distribute the brighteners on the clothes better so you don't look like a speckled up mess if you happen to walk into a blacklight lol.

  • I put the clothes all in, turn on the washer and pour liquid laundry detergent in a circle on top of the clothes. My Mom puts her soap in first then the clothes on top.

  • the soap goes in first while the water is running, if I put it on top of the clothes then it doesn't get all the clothes as clean and i never use powder with cold water
