Biodegradable detergent for doing laundry
The do-it-yourself detergent for the washing machine is quite effective because it combines the stain remover power of Marseille soap with the mild disinfectant power of baking soda. However, in some situations (stubborn dirt, stubborn or too old stains ...) it might be useful to use a more powerful detergent.
In this context it would be better to use biodegradable detergents. Biodegradable laundry detergents have several advantages: they clean like classic detergents (more aggressive) but at the same time respect the fabrics and do not clog the washing machine filter or damage the seals. Conventional detergents tend to accumulate between the seals, in the filter and in other components of the washing machine and, by retaining the dirt, they prevent the water from doing its duty by sweeping everything away. This is the cause of bad smells in the washing machine drum ... in fact, even if the drum is perfectly clean, the bad smells remain because they are located in hidden components. A biodegradable detergent prevents the appearance of bad smells, respects the clothes, does not damage the washing machine and above all does not damage the planet.
