If you use powder detergent in a HE washer do you put it in the little tray or directly in with the clothes?

also what about laundry boosters like oxy clean that are powdered?

  • Put it in the washer
    If there is a stain I put a little on the stain

  • I have a front loader so I put the detergent - liquid, powder, downy - all in the dispensing tray. Stain treaters - I use sprays - I put directly on the stain. But if I were to use Oxyclean powder - I'd put it in the same tray slot as the powder detergent.

  • I'm about a 50/50- I usually just dump it on the clothes before I even think about it-
