REGULAR DETERGENTS DON’T HELP
Regular detergents are not as effective on synthetics as they are on cotton. That’s because the way chemists formulate a detergent for a hydrophilic fabric is different than the way they formulate a detergent for a hydrophobic fabric. Since 90% of the fabrics we wear are cotton, regular detergents are optimized for cotton.
Most people judge their detergent on whether it gets ketchup stains out of tee shirts or grass stains out of jeans. Rightly so! That’s why regular detergents add stain fighters, optical brighteners, and other additives – so when you look at your clothes after they’re washed, they look clean.
But if you’re reading this, it’s because you’re also judging your clothes on the way they smell, and you’ve found regular detergents lacking when it comes to your synthetics.
