If I use the HE laundry detergent in a regular machine, should I use more?

I accidentally bought the Gain HE detergent. I know it makes less suds. So should I use more? Or will my clothes get just as clean with the regular amount?

  • I would add a bit more because there is more water in your washer so the soap would be more diluted if you use the stated amount.

  • No... HE detergent is just made with a soap base that doesn't produce tons of suds. Most peeps use way too much detergent anyways. Agitation is actually what cleans your clothes. Detergent helps remove stains and odors.... You should be fine using the standard amount.
