Stop Using So Much Laundry Detergent


LS! To make a difference you should use eco friendly detergent. Think of the environment!

i pour like half the bottle in each wash

I stretch a jug intended for 110 loads to about 250.



Tide pods help me correctly use the right amount, although they’re less eco friendly.


I use tide cold water, suppose to be better for the environment because your machine uses cold water which is more energy efficient than having to heat up hot water. And I don’t use a lot when I do use it and my clothes are always clean and fresh.


Can’t have those in my home as my kid is Gen Z. I’m told they snack on them.

I use less than called for, but I also add ammonia to get rid of stink.


I used to have to clean and close a laundromat. I never cared how much detergent someone used just as long there asses were out the door at closing time. I clerked the liquor store right next to it and one night after dealing with a million drunks and lowlifes this lady at the laundromat just started her load in the washer at closing time and wanted me to wait an hour. Well, I noticed she wasn’t handing me any money so I kicked her out with wet clothes and all.

That kind of reminds me of working in restaurants. The place would close at 11:00pm and sometimes huge parties of people would walk in at 10:58pm. Then they have to sit around, read the menu, decide what they want. I would end up staying an extra 45 minutes to an hour past closing time. I hated when that happened. I didn’t have the luxury of kicking them out of the restaurant.

My mom worked 18 years as a short fry cook. She had no problem saying no to people who walked in close to closing time. I would of done the same thing considering the type of people she worked for.

Haha! I got free meals all the time.
